Handspun Hope Ruana
During the years of genocide, the craft of spinning by hand was completely lost in Rwanda. Handspun Hope came and reintroduced not only the spinning wheel, but the Merino sheep which provide beautiful wool. They introduced natural dyeing, and rekindled the art of knitting. So that a piece from this group has hands of hope all over it, each process moving forward a new cycle - not of poverty - but of creativity. We fell for the simple naturally dyed ruana which is sure to keep you warm and cozy throughout the cooler months.
Made in Rwanda.
