About

HandSpuns, HandKnits, HandSewns ... Fine yarns, apparel, and fabrics!

In 1984, we began this apparel business as a sewing and knitting freelancers from the garage of our home in San Francisco, California. We worked with many San Francisco designers doing samplemaking, and patternmaking while at the same time also making custom apparel for a select group of clients. Our clients ranged from coast to coast and included a wide variety of clothing styles. Today, our studio is located in Northern California in the beautiful town of Chico.

​For more than 34 years, we have been professionally making clothing and knitwear. Our repetoire includes design, alterations, patternmaking, samplemaking, and apparel manufacturing. We have also had the pleasure (and pain) of raising and processing the fibers from our own spinning flock of many varieties of sheep and Angora goats. We believe that having the ability to process the fibers from the producer to the final product is a very valuable skill. It is also taught us to appreciate the intense labor and love required to make the final yarn or garment. Although we no longer have the spinner's flock, we have moved on to focus exclusively on handspinning yarns and handknitting. It is our goal to expand in the upcoming year and get back to designing woven apparel and home goods.

Spin2knit is the fullfillment of a life long dream of making beautiful, unique yarns, and knitwear designs constructed from a variety of high-quality yarns. A passion for knitting combined with an appreciation of fine handspun fibers are what Spin2Knit is all about!
