About the Talk
Do you consider your knitting as a conscious contribution to slow fashion and an eco-conscious choice? If so, how can your yarn choice further enhance your soft threading on earth? Sourcing locally, rooting for rare breeds, selecting strong yarns for durability; there are many ways of acting consciously that may or may not have crossed your mind in light of the mind- boggling choices on offer. And when is recycled wool actually eco-friendly? This talk plans to unravel both myths and facts.
