Celebrating the tradition of textiles, craftsmanship, and collaboration, each knit in our library has a point of origin, a distant ancestor or family likeness, and we have named them after the rich history and natural wonders of the countries that inspired their creation:
Sverige, Norge, Denmark, Ísland, Rossiya, Éire, Alba, Nederland, England, France, Elláda, Italia, España, Canada, United States, Perú, Misr, Al-Mamlakah al-Maghribiyyah, Botswana, Nippon, People's Republic of China, India, Sri Lanka, Aotearoa, and Bahrain.

Hesperios Knit Library Artifact
In 1796, the Ulster linen manufacturers distributed spinning wheels to encourage linen manufacturing—6,000 wheels in one year alone. The effort was such that at one point nearly every household in Donegal had a wheel, though they were more often used for spinning wool rather than the linen for which they were intended. The wheels were small enough to be portable, and the women gathered at a different house each night to spin and card wool together, and to share stories, tea, and company.
