Knit yourself calm – and a hat

For fall we have put together a DIY knit bag that brings you the best of slow living. The bag contains the recipe for a beautiful hat and enough yarn to knit it yourself. Knitting is one of the most calming activities we know of, perfect when you need a moment to yourself throughout your day or when watching tv at night. Letting your thoughts flow, while the yarn runs through your fingers is pure meditation, and it is extremely satisfying watching the yarn slowly become something you can wear or gift to someone you care for.
Our DIY knit bag has been developed in cooperation with Chola that imports beautiful textiles from around the world, but also has its own production of sustainably produced alpaca in Bolivia. Alpaca wool comes from llamas and the smallholders that supply the cooperatively owned mill Coproca in the Bolivian highlands outside of La Paz do not know of commercial farming, but care for their animals with great attention and in an absolutely sustainable fashion.
The DIY knit bag from Gai+Lisva is a lovely fabric bag that contains the recipe for a beautiful hat and enough alpaca wool yarn to make it. Want to immerse yourself in slow living this fall? Or perhaps you know someone who does? Our DIY knit bag is the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love.
