When my cousins were born I was not to be stopped. Little sweaters, animals, hats, you name it and I made it.
When my children were born I continued this nice habit and started to combine knitting with sewing. I was successful, people asked me where I bought these nice clothing. I loved dressing up my kids!
In the mean time I was teaching at a primary school, that was in the nineties. I remember teaching my colleague how to knit , sitting between the door that divided our class, can you imagine!
After 36 years of teaching I decided to transform my hobby into a business.
The past two years I have been following classes, read books and experimented with my dyeing skills. I knit with my own yarn and the interest from people around me is growing.
I am ready!
Let the yarn make the difference!!
Kleur en Draad means colour and yarn. How?
Kleur en Draad must be known as; Less is more; with the most beautiful yarn to fade colors, mix it with butter soft mohair or combine it with tonal colors, you make exclusive knitwear with the most simple patterns.
On this website I will add links to patterns like this, with models and kits to get you started. I will also have colors ready for you to combine your own kit.
Thank you for letting me share my creativity with you all, it is going to be a lovely adventure!
