When you walk into My Sister Knits, you first notice the yarn. Two floors of it! As you browse the yarn, you begin to notice the other items. Special items that Julie has found and stocked the shop with. Items that make your knitting life and your daily life more fun!
For instance, Swedish Dishcloths! These eco-friendly, ultra-absorbent dishcloths are made with 70% wood cellulose from FSC certified forests and 30% cotton. Since they can be washed many, many times, each one can replace 17 rolls of paper towels. They last 9 – 12 months and are biodegradable. Plus, they have darling screen-printed designs on them!
You won’t want to miss the tiny items! We have our own enamel pins featuring Molly, Julie’s Brussels Griffon and our official shop dog, and the My Sister Knits’ chickens! We have a selection of other pins such as the white Brooklyn Tweed one on the far left of the photo above. We also have wooden stitch markers and tags for hats and sweaters from Katrinkles. Keep your eye out for these small goodies!
Oh, the bracelets! These are so much fun! When you try one on in the shop, you may notice that it’s a bit stiff. Never fear, it will soften up with one or two wearings. In addition to being useful, these are unique accessories that are conversation starters! They come in different lengths so be sure to try them all!
Wax and Wool candles are a wonderful find! You’ll often see one burning in the shop as we can’t get enough of them! They are hand-poured soy candles with incredible scents. Leaving the candle lit for two hours or until the wax melts to the edges of the jar lengthens the burn time up to 50 hours.
We also have Soak to care for your hand knits and other delicate garments. Soak is a rinse-less fabric wash. It’s a low suds liquid and the dirt and detergent come out in the water. No need to rinse ever! It’s also eco-friendly, biodegradable, and their bottles are recyclable and have all be recycled once before.
We invite you to play with these special items, and more, that Julie has found!
