Kith & Kin designer interview: Valeria Kerkkä

by Elizabeth Sullivan November 14, 2015

Next up in our series of blog interviews is Valeria Kerkkä from Finland. Valeria designed the beautiful Quatrefoil mittens which I absolutely adore.

We really wanted to pursue the idea of adding more locally-sourced yarn, and we knew that we needed to have a plan in place before shearing season if we wanted to move forward with it this year.

Elizabeth and I had a great time at this year's edition of the Twist Fibre Festival in St-Andre-Avellin, QC. We spent the week leading up to the festival busily preparing ourselves, dyeing a ton of yarn and putting together some new kits for some of our patterns that include beads.
