Much to our delight, Twisted is now carrying Be Sweet yarns!
Not only do we love Be Sweets yarns (give me a moment, more on that below), but we are huge fans of their philosophy. Be Sweet, a company with a conscience, was founded on the principle of being kind to others. Nadine Curtis created Be Sweet in 2003 while living in Cape Town, South Africa. Be Sweet’s mission is to bring socially and environmentally friendly products to fashionable consumers that evoke an individual style and help support community development around the world. They are good to the environment, provide stable fair wage jobs to women in South Africa, and devote a portion of their profits to schools in the area. More about their mission…
As if this weren’t enough (and frankly, it almost is) their yarns are fantastic. Be Sweet yarns were featured in the Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, AND Verena Spring/Summer 2010 issues!
