Companies We Love: Knitter’s Pride

Here at The Knitting Nest, we pride ourselves on partnering with companies who make a difference in the world. Some of the ways that the creators of our beloved yarn, needles, bags and more are helping others are so inspiring, we thought we would share a little of that information and highlight the ways that they’re helping.

One of our favorite brands, Knitter’s Pride, just published a blog post describing the many ways that they’re taking action to make the world a better place. From charitable work, to education for children, to job opportunities for women, this is a company that is truly making a difference. Find out all about it here.

We love supporting inspirational companies. It matters to us, and we know it matters to you. Isn’t it amazing that we can support the creation of so much good, while doing something that’s fun, relaxing and creates unique works of beauty?
