Neighborhood Fiber Co was founded by Karida Collins in 2006 in a basement in Washington DC, when Karida set out to create hand-dyed yarns inspired by the natural beauty and diverse neighbourhoods in America's capital. In 2011 Neighborhood Fiber Co. moved to Baltimore and has continued this tradition of offering vibrant, one of a kind colours inspired by urban landscapes. Neighborhood Fiber Co now offers an incredible 14 yarn bases in over 70 colours, and the majority of the yarns are made with GOTS-certified Organic Merino, which is machine washable but doesn't include many of the chemicals used in the traditional superwash process. They are committed to justice, empowerment, equality, and environmental responsibility, working in a way that aligns with their values.
For this year’s MKAL we have some gorgeous kits from Neighborhood Fiber Co that encompass all of their amazing principles and urban landscape colour inspiration, and we can’t wait to see how their yarns knit up in our mystery shawl - we know you won’t be disappointed.
