Interview: Hannah Haworth x Mamy Factory
Introduction : Who are you? What is your universe ? When did you start
I'm Hannah, I live in the mountains of upstate New York and most of my day is spent at our house where I run my textiles company Handa and hang out with my 1 year old daughter. I really love to knit, and do so at every opportunity! I started when I was a child- originally I'm from Scotland, and I guess a lot of little girls growing up in the highlands at that time learned how to knit one way or another, they used to teach it in school even!
Question 1 : How did you discover Mamy Factory and what do you think about
I discovered it online while I was searching for the perfect yarn for my design idea. I loved the dedication to natural fibers, and enjoyed the playful aesthetic of the brand.
Question 2 : Which were you inspiring ideas to create this model for this
I first designed a women's version while I was expecting my daughter, I named the sweater after her and it felt natural to design for her size too- thus 'Mini' Celine was created.
Question 3 : Why did name this model Céline ?
It's named after my daughter
Question 4 : Should you have one advice to give to knit this model with the
Mamy Factory yarns, which one would it be?
You'll want to make many sizes as your child grows up- its fast to make and so easy to wear with everything!
Question 5 : your opinion on this collab in one sentence
Such a pleasure!
Question 6 : To whom would you recommend buying this kit? / your opinion on
the Mamy Factory Petite chérie yarns?
Great for someone trying cables out for the first time- the petite cherie makes fast knitting, and the angora is so flattering on the braids.
This is for anyone who wants to make an elegant and very soft sweater for a special child, it is not too much work to make as a gift either :)
