WALK Collection

May 01, 2020

Cathrin of WALK Collection first introduced her hand-dyed yarn to customers in 2010, expanding on an existing business of bags and knitting accessories. She credits her background as a dressmaker and her degree in business administration with helping her to succeed.

In addition to dying yarn she spins, weaves, crochets, latch-hooks, macramés, and of course knits! We asked Cathrin if she has a favourite base to knit with or dye, and she tells us that though it’s hard to pick favourites, the Cottage Merino’s squishiness and Kid Mohair Lace’s fluffiness are at the top of her list - they’re great to combine too!

Walk Collection now involves a whole team who take care of dyeing and processing customer orders on a day-to-day basis, and Cathrin tells us that she loves the positive energy that comes from her team and that her dream is just to continue doing what she’s doing, creating beautiful yarn and meeting amazing people from all over the world.
