Knit Collage is the brainchild of Creative Director Amy Small who fell in love with hand spinning yarn the minute she picked it up back in 2005. Inspired by nature, fashion and traveling, she creates unique, vibrant yarns that reflect her cheerful approach towards the world. Based in Hong Kong, she taught a group of local women to craft the yarns on traditional spinning wheels. Bits of ribbons, sequins, flower appliques, and anything that strikes her fancy are spun together with vibrant colors of wool, mohair and sparkling Angelina fibers. The raw materials and trims remain the same for each skein but no 2 yarns are completely alike because of their handmade nature. The wool and mohair fibers come all the way from Australia and South Africa. The six ladies Knit Collage employs are part of the Hong Kong Lady MacLehose Community Centre. This organization helps disadvantaged and uneducated women who typically have trouble finding work, find flexible and secure jobs that supplement their family incomes. Knit Collage hopes to inspire your creativity, in whatever craft that may be, and make the world a better place along the way.
