Hand knitting is a centuries-old technique, with roots dating to the 19th century and traditions found within Canada’s Indigenous cultures of the Pacific Northwest. Distinguishable by the thick, unprocessed home-spun wool yarns and bulky appearances, these hand knit pieces are prized for their unique appearance and time-intensive artisanal construction.
Our HAVEN hand-knit pieces use a virgin wool yarn, distinguishable in its chunky appearance and unique craftsmanship. The wool fibres are painstakingly hand-spun, working the robust wool into a bulky yarn. Thanks to this process, the wool yarn contains a considerable number of air pockets, enhancing its heat retention and lightweight feel.
We work with our Canadian knitter to create a custom waffle knit with influences from Canada’s Indigenous people’s traditions. This centuries-old technique lends to an unmistakable knit that drapes comfortably throughout. Structural deerskin leather panelling is punched and stitched, all by hand. These supple panels are stitched at the elbows with deerskin leather lace, creating a truly one-of-a-kind piece.
