A few months ago, I received Coty’s message. With Allessandra, they contacted me to discover their brand of ethical wool: Nomadnoos. Both are passionate about the know-how of the hymalayan countries. After seeing poverty in these countries, especially women, they decided to create Nomadnoos, a social company where spinners and breeders are paid in a sustainable way.
I immediately was very enthusiastic about the principle and it gives me pleasure to talk about their brand today. Spun wool is a real treasure of finesse. We see all the authenticity of the hand spun yarn with an irregular yarn but which is nonetheless a pleasure to knit.
So I had the chance to knit satuul sheep wool, a Himalayan sheep breeds and colors “Satuul my bags” which corresponds to a beautiful light blue / teal.
To highlight this thread, I decided to knit it at the edge of the shawl so that the whole thread unfolds in all its authenticity. I worked the border with a first part in horizontal lace, then in point of elm and finally, a last part in horizontal lace. I made sure to create a basque effect so that the reflections are put in front. 🙂
