At Ja, Wol we endeavour to support local and/or handmade products. We stock some of the finest locally, handmade tools and notions in an effort to promote high quality artistry and to reduce our environmental footprint.

Lisa Jayne lives almost around the corner, just a sea and a border between us. But it feels like we've been neighbors forever. I imagine going to her house for tea while her cat Bernard jumps up my lap and we chat about knitting and other needle arts. 

Lisa Jayne is a lovely lady her style is quirky and granny chique. Not shying away from the memories we all hold when it comes to knitting. This is what she writes about her work:

" Heirloom quality and bespoke hand sewn crafts.....

Hand sewn items for you and your home that are often made from locally sourced vintage fabrics. With a sense of nostalgia and a gentle nod to bygone days, I incorporate traditional crafts such as hand embroidery, quilting and applique into small, often bespoke items that are a pleasure to touch and handle. 

Inspired by tales of older relatives, great aunts, nanas, grandmas.... people who are now often gone from our lives but not our hearts, I wanted to make useful pieces from time treasured and hand me down fabrics

Fabric has so much memory and story, and it often gets put away, forgotten about, by using these pieces to create items that get seen and used helps keep those stories and memories alive.

If you have fabric that is precious or that has sentimental value I'm happy to create a custom made piece especially for you. "

Description

Made from a time softened and re-purposed vintage furnishing fabric, the Claire wrap is medium sized knitting needle wrap and is the perfect place to store your interchangeable circular knitting needles along with a few other accessories you often need when knitting... the fabric is a yellow floral print on a creamy white background, and is lined with a cream cotton calico.

Three levels of pockets provide plenty of space to store a range of standard/long length needle tips, 11 spaces along the front for needle tips in various widths... including one space wide enough for a needle gauge.

Behind the front row of 11 spaces for needles are two rows of wide pockets, deep enough to store your circular cables and other knitting accessories.

The needle wrap is fully lined as are all the pockets.

Please note this listing is for the knitting needle wrap and not for any of the contents.

The wrap measures 13 1/2 inches wide and has a height of 8 1/4 inches with the flap down.

The wrap is designed to be folded closed and is kept secure with a length of luxurious velvet ribbon.

Inspiration

This wrap is named after my friend Claire... the front row of pockets are 4 inches deep with a back support of 5 1/7 inches.

Old and worn fabric that has so much memory and is all full of story often gets put away, forgotten about, these needle wraps have been made to remember and cherish, to be used and not kept for best or fancy.

Please note that while the fabric is carefully sourced, and then washed, the fabric used is salvaged and re-purposed and may have some marks and wear on the fabric often found on vintage linens.
