About Us

After more than 25 years in the knitwear industry and 15 years as designer and owner of the brands DeLux Hats and Knitwits, I decided to launch Hygge Knits as a way to support my favorite charity in Nepal, Antardristi and also the women's centric workshop in Kathmandu that I have had an ongoing, symbiotic relationship with for many years. The result is a line that embodies the definition of the Danish word Hygge; 

a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.

Working with organic, mostly merino wool and linings made of upcycled and recycled materials, Hygge Knits epitomizes my personal mandate of low impact, high quality, organic, conscientiously crafted and fairly traded accessories that keep you feeling warm, inside and out.
