The reasons as to why I chose the name “Wooly Traditions”…
You know when your grand-mother or other relative makes you something… mostly knits, they are so soft and comfy and just heart warming. A lot of people these days always talk about how they grand-mother or mother use to knit. It always seems to bring a nice warm fuzy feeling…
Back in the day people had to make their own things… it was either way to expensive to buy or the manufacturing process was not quite in place yet. It was sort of a survival mode. If you wanted to have a pair of socks to keep you warm you had to make them. So in a way it became somewhat of a “tradition” if I can put it that way. Also, they only had access to natural fibres and thus wool was more prominent and easy to work with (unlike linen).
So there we have it… simple reason as to why I chose the name “Wooly Traditions” for my micro business.
I absolutely love working with natural fibres and incorporate them into my crafts in various ways.
