About Us

Many of you already know us as HEIRLOOMS, which is our business name. Our web site www.scandinavianweaveandknit.com features our Hand Woven & Hand Knit items. Stop in and take a look at what we've made with our fibers. Color & texture is what motivate us.

We've been on the road going to sheep & wool festivals, arts and crafts shows, and farmer's markets since 1999. Maybe we've seen you in the Adirondacks or at one of the many sheep and wool festivals, such as Rhinebeck or Maryland, where we've been selling our hand dyed yarns since 2008.

With many requests to buy our hand dyed yarns on line we've created www.yarnhygge.com to feature some of our yarns.

"Hygge" is a Danish word best described as a feeling of coziness.

I grew up in Denmark. My girlfriends and I would get together - next to the fireplace - drinking tea or coffee and enjoying a few goodies, while we each would work on our projects. Telling stories, sharing family patterns, getting inspired, and teaching each other new techniques. Very "Hyggeligt"!

We hope you enjoy our new web site and find something to make your life a little more "hyggelig"! 

Our inventory is constantly changing. Feel free to contact us at any time, if you do not find what you are looking for.

PS: If you have any suggestions to make this web site more convenient to use, please let us know.
