who we are

We are the wild ones, passionate about creating rebellious yarns on our own terms. We don't compromise on principles or style, we don't adhere to social media algorithms (you won't find us on there anymore), we don't give a f*ck about who or what is popular in knitting and crochet and we turn down awards. Our people are like you, rebellious, cheeky, on-the-nose, passionate about colour and desiring the freedom to just be yourself. Hugely influenced by metal and punk music, fashion heroes Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, tech and sneaker culture. The Countess is accompanied by Blazin'Squad, and we're powered by loud music, doughnuts and self-expression. Established in 2011. KNIT WHO YOU WANT TO BE
