The Knit Apothecary is a fusion of my love of the fiber arts with my passion for sustainability. My name is Felice and I am a fiber artist and indie dyer. Over the past few years, I’ve become more aware of the devastating impact that fast fashion and mass production have on the health of our environment, our animals and society. These eye-opening revelations have compelled me to make with mindfulness – adopting an eco-ethical approach to my creative practice by giving mindful consideration to the materials and processes I use and their consequential effects on the environment.
As a result, I felt compelled to create a something that was not only beautiful to make with but something that symbolized the principles that I try to live by when it comes to what I consume, how I consume and the businesses I support. Each skein of yarn represents my belief in producing and consuming in a responsible way that considers the dignity and health the environment, animals and people.
That is why I choose only ethically-sourced, natural fiber sourced from cruelty-free and mulesing-free farms hand-dyed with non-toxic, eco-safe materials and sustainably-sourced, plant ingredients - making it safe for the environment, you and your loved ones.
