Hand Knitted and Organic

This morning a reader contacted me about handknits for children. Coincidentally I recently met Brenda Green from Brendaml. She knits the most gorgeous little beanies, booties and cardigans from her home studio in Christchurch, New Zealand. Everything is knitted from 100% NZ certified Organic merino wool and 100% NZ Merino wool. She also knits with pure wool and certified Organic Lambswool.

I just love merino. I live in it in winter - socks, sweaters and thermal underwear - I stock up whenever I am home. I am very tempted to ask Brenda to knit something in my size. In the meantime I will be letting my kids browse her shop as we start to think winter.
