I was very surprised and pleased to get a custom order in my etsy shop! I had pretty much ignored the shop for months, and while I have still been knitting things on and off (mostly off, to be honest), I haven’t taken pictures or listed anything in ages.
But anyway, the lovely customer asked me if I could make her a Cara scarflette in a non-animal yarn because she’s vegan and allergic to wool. I was only too happy to oblige and in the end we agreed on this lovely rich red. I was really surprised to find out how few entirely synthetic yarns there actually are. Most do have some wool in them, even if it is just 15%. The yarn I ended up using is one that is aimed at knitting for babies, and therefore comes mainly in pastelly colours. Which is actually kind of weird in itself, why do babies need to be next to pastelly things?
I think a few people who read this blog are vegans, are all of you opposed to wool? I’m curious to find out why/why not!
