Do you care for the things you buy the same way you care for those you make? Knitting your own clothes makes you feel good and improves self-esteem. Also, we tend to take better care of our handmade pieces, so they last longer than the one we buy. Make your own clothes, take care of them, and you’ll be contributing to a more sustainable planet where the slow-fashion industry has an important role.

WAK is trying to spread the slow-fashion movement by bringing new value to handmade fashion items. We work on developing trendy designs and kits for beginners, so we can reach younger generations.


Have you ever thought about how the clothes that we buy are made?

If knitting your own sweater takes you more than a week and costs more than $90, how can other brands produce them in less than one day for under $20? We encourage everyone to think about the labor, costs, and production processes that we’re supporting. By doing this, we have an opportunity to reduce pollution and our impact on the environment.


We care a lot about our materials and how they’re sourced. Our team oversees every step in our production process to ensure that our products are environmentally friendly. Also, We contribute to local communities, creating opportunities for work and community development through our long production process: A little bit to us could mean a lot to them.

Apart from our yarn, our needles and hooks are artisan made from 100% FSC Certified beechwood. Our paper bags are recycled, recyclable, and reusable. From the moment you open your kit, there are so many ways to give a second life to these bags and reduce waste.


If you like it, make it! And if you love it, make it last forever! Take care of your handmade projects with the help of our guide:

  • After spending so much time crafting your handmade items, we strongly advise to not washing them in a washing machine to avoid damage to their delicate and natural fibers. Using a washing machine can result in your project shrinking and felting and is almost impossible to recover!

  • It's completely normal to see pilling on your handmade wool garments. We suggest that you use a wool comb or a pilling machine to help maintain and prolongs the lifespan of your projects by eliminating unsightly fuzz and pills.

  • Using embroidery to repair and mend worn-out clothes adds unique, decorative touches while reinforcing the fabric, extending the garment's usability, and reducing waste.

  • Using duplicate stitch is very useful for repairing and mending hand-knitted items because it seamlessly reinforces weakened areas, preserving the garment's design integrity and extending its lifespan. It can also be used to new spin to hand-knit items that you've had in your collection for a long time, making them feel like new!

  • Handwashing handmade wool sweaters helps maintain their delicate fibers and intricate designs, ensuring longevity and preserving their original quality. Make sure to gently handwash your hand-knitted projects with room temperature water and neutral soap.

  • To air dry hand knitted items, do not wring, gently reshape them to their original dimensions, lay them flat on a towel or a drying rack away from direct sunlight and allow them to dry completely.

  • Steaming handknit items instead of washing them helps to freshen and remove wrinkles without risking damage to delicate fibers or disrupting the garment's shape.

  • Did you know that wool fibers have natural antibacterial properties? The fiber's unique structure and lanolin content can inhibit the growth of bacteria and keep garments fresher for longer periods. Sometimes all you need is to air out your hand-knit items, this should be enough to eliminate any trapped odors, preserving their cleanliness and integrity.

  • If you like it, wear it! And if you don't like it anymore, unravel it! Unraveling hand-knitted items to reuse the yarn promotes sustainability by reducing waste and allows the creation of new projects with previously used materials.

  • Our Mixed Yarn is GOTS Certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

  • This certification is provided by Promperú, an entity part of the Peruvian Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry. The Fair Trade is a solidary, equitable and ethical model, which seeks to provide fair benefits to each of the parties involved in the production process of a product or service.

  • Mulesing is a painful surgical procedure for sheep, commonly used in Australia, to prevent the parasitic infection flystrike. Mulesing can be avoided, there are viable alternatives available. Our yarn is only 100% mulesing-free.

  • STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®️ is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
