A round of diamonds, getting smaller and smaller, flowing out of a line of twisted rib and upwards into a pompom. Twisted stitches standing out on a reverse stockinette fabric that lets the yarn shine. The Morganite hat is not only sure to become a wardrobe staple, it’s also a “just one more round” project, just the way we like it. Coupled with Moel View Yarn’s beautifully natural dyed yarn, we can’t wait to wear it all winter long.

Hi! My name is Imke, I live in Düsseldorf, germany together with my husband and our 3 girls. I love everything fibre and craft related since my early childhood. In 2006 I got my degree in fashion design and worked for a big fashion company for several years. Becoming a mum let my find the courage to quit with fast fashion and decided that slow living and mindful consumption is more important for me. My designs are intent to be timeless and minimalist wardrobe staples.
