Best Resource For Ethical Knitters: Silk Road Textiles

Best Resource For Ethical Knitters

Silk Road Textiles in College Hill is the area’s premier stop for ethically sourced fibers from fine fabrics to yarn. With an emphasis on eclectic, exotic and globally sourced textiles, their expert staff can recommend materials for almost any knitting, quilting, felting, crocheting, dyeing or sewing project. In store you’ll find better-than-craft-store brands like Leilani Arts, a natural yarn produced by women’s collectives, or Tibetan Reywa Fibers yak-down yarn, both of which you can use with Lantern Moon handcrafted knitting needles. When you’re taking the time to knit a gift for yourself or someone else, the option to go ethical and ethnic adds a new dimension to your art. And if you don’t want to knit alone? Head to one of Silk Road’s stitching social events, like the last Tuesday of the month Sip & Stitch, where you can bring your favorite beverage and any type of stitching project to work on with friends. Silk Road Textiles, 6106 Hamilton Ave., College Hill, 513-541-3700, silkroadcincinnati.com.
