New beginning

We have been waiting for this day so long but finally the website is ours again! Big facelift has been made too as you can see. Almost all credit from awesome pictures goes to Jonna Hietala, co-owner of Laine Magazine and dear friend of mine – she is the best! I had an honor to be part of the first issue of Laine with my Syykukkia mittens, from Tukuwool Fingering of course. And what a collection of designers! I wish all the best to Laine, that journey will be long and shiny I can say…

The reborn of Tukuwool has been just breathtaking. We bought the brand in April of 2016 and after that the growth has been rapid. Knitters and retailers have loved the new shade card and we are thrilled about that. We have got many new retailers from Finland and all over the world. In March we are heading to Edinburgh Yarn Festival for the first time as an exhibitor outside Finland. So exiting and a bit nervous – will the yarn be there in time, what knitters will think about our yarn, do we remember all… there is so many sleepless nights ahead before EYF. But most of all we are bursting from enthusiasm!

Before that we are waiting to get our new batch home from the spinnery and the dyeing mill. We will have 3 new colors – natural middle brown, light blue and mustard. Tukuwool Sock will have these too and also 3 other old undyed shades. New patterns will be also released soon from many designers – Joji Locatelli, Isabell Kraemer, Suvi Simola and Meiju K-P have all Tukuwool Fingering on their needles…
