A New Yarn Has Arrived!
Urban Knitters has added Louet Euroflax, a washable 100% linen yarn to their product mix. In addition, they now sell SOAK, a gentle laundry soap for fine fibers.
Valerie Gross started her journey as an entrepreneur in November of 2007. After many frustrating projects, she became hooked on knitting in her early 20s, when she was introduced to a course on designing knitting patterns. She has been passionate about knitting ever since. Freelance knitting contracts led her to a degree in clothing and textiles, providing her the knowledge about fibers, yarns, and the variety of textile fabrications.
Recently, she became excited at the popularity of knitting, particularly amongst the young, who socialize through knitting groups and websites. She thought there was no better time to start a yarn retail business.
Her aim for Urban Knitters is to pass on her passion for knitting, and a sense of accomplishment in pursuing a traditional craft. At the same time, the need for individualism in clothing choices can be achieved by adding a "unique" knitted piece to your "fashion" wardrobe.
Urban Knitters provides all the necessary tools to feel that sense of accomplishment through their luxurious natural fiber yarns, accessories, service and knowledge, inspiring environment, and a fashion forward approach to a craft that is centuries old.
