From 1st April 2019, 5% of our sales at www.countessablaze.com and in-store will be used as microloans on Kiva. Kiva is a worldwide project specialising in microfinancing small businesses and individuals who are locked out of accessing business aid from mainstream banks and organisations.
Microfinancing gives people an opportunity to begin businesses, or grow them and a number are textiles based. Textiles based loans will be our major interest but we'll also lend to others.
Do you need a smaller circular needle for sock knitting, hats, sleeves and smaller projects? These 23cm (9") long are perfect for the job. The join is smooth and as they are made from stainless steel, perfect for those with a nickel sensitivity.
