Meet Felipe from Santiago de Chile! 🇨🇱 @misterwool
Felipe is a designer, dyer and knitter in love of the colors and natural fibers.
What are your favorites right now?
Yarn Store: My favorite yarn store is Mr.Wool. I’m the owner of this project and the main objective is to improve the quality of wool in Chile through a more contemporary product and natural fibers from Chile and the world. I also love the yarn store of my friend ChileKnitz. We work together.
Why do you knit? For me, knitting is a form of plastic expression. I admire all the people who knit and design because it requires great work and perseverance to be a great knitter.
Most challenging project? I’m working on a Yoke sweater pattern from Chilean knitter and designer @marcelachangknits. I am also starting the Mkal 2017 Speckle & Pop! of @westknits. The two projects are different learning processes and for me knitting is always learning new things. Both are also my favorite designers.
What’s your new favorite thing? I’m totally dedicated to Mr.Wool and I can not stop thinking about wool all day. I am very happy for my new studio where I will produce much more wool. I am also interested in creating a community of Chilean men and women contemporary knitters.
