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.

Psychological studies of Norway have shown that the farther north researchers traveled, the more positive subjects were about winter weather. The positivity about challenging winter weather has a name in Norwegian: Koselig. The term doesn’t have an easy translation into English. The ideology, which is understood across Norway but is most ardently deployed in the coldest regions in the winter months, is about warmth, simplicity, and finding the brightest aspects of a dark season—literally and metaphorically.
