商品簡介
 
Never before has it been so important to be aware of our environmental footprint and impact. As a knitter and yarn lover you will already be aware of the benefits of 'making' rather than 'buying' and the benefits of knitting with natural rather than synthetic fibres. But are you sure your yarn choices are as environmentally friendly as they could be?
This collection of 20 projects from knitting blogger and environmentalist, Epipa, shows you how to knit more sustainably. With this practical guide you can learn how to make your knitting more environmentally friendly by choosing the most eco friendly yarns such as bamboo, organic cotton, linen and flax, as well as tips on how to reduce your yarn footprint.
Drawing on her childhood experience where she was encouraged by her grandmothers to reuse rather than throw things away, repair damaged clothes and homewares, and recycle unwanted linen to be used as cleaning rags and cloths, Epipa shares all her ideas for living a more sustainable lifestyle while still enjoying the craft of knitting.
As well as advice on yarn sourcing and the environmental impact of various different types of yarn, Epipa shares her knitting patterns for a more zero waste lifestyle without the need for 'disposable' cloths and paper towels. There are instructions for how to turn old t shirts, bed linen and tablecloths into your own cotton yarn and how to restore unravelled yarn from unfinished projects to its former glory rather than laying abandoned in a cupboard.
The projects include beautiful, useful and practical things for everyday life such as shopping baskets for the larder, the kitchen and the bathroom as well as rugs and runners and accessories for the bathroom. Choose from knitted tea towels, dish clothes, and shopping bags so you don't need to buy 'disposable' plastic versions. Many of the projects are suitable for beginner knitters, and all the basic knitting instructions are included, but there are also more complicated projects including a knitted top and backpack for those with more experience.
This is the perfect resource for any knitter wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and create wonderful, sustainable projects for their friends and family.
