Hi! My name is Chelsea, I live in Oak Creek, Colorado with my husband and 3 good dogs. I started knitting about 15 years ago. I fell in love heirloom quality knits & fibers and decided to share it with the world! Here you'll find a constantly changing curation of mindfully made goods, knitwear, and luxury fibers.

    It can be difficult to find quality handmade luxury items like the beanie I received from Chelsea. We worked together to find the best colors and style and my merino wool beanie exceeds all my expectations! The wool is so warm, but still manages to breathe extremely well.

    This is my third order with Chelsea. I ordered a headband and I can already tell it will be my go-to this winter/fall. Its beautifully made and every time I wear it someone asks me about it. Truly great ordering experience.

    Every skien of yarn I ordered is so unique and beautiful! I cannot wait to cast on a project with this wool. Ordering was a breeze, and shipping was quick. Chelsea even offered to cake the yarn for me! 10/10
