About Sh*t That I Knit
A sustainable company that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Sh*t That I Knit began as founder Christina and her mom selling hand-knit beanies in and around Boston, and has grown to a full team of employees in the U.S. and Peru. The brand’s handmade, customizable beanies (mix-and-match your base color and pom-pom styles, for a look that’s all your own) are created from Peruvian merino wool. While Sh*t That I Knit says it’s devoted to “celebrating the sillier things in life,” it’s still a mission-driven brand: It uses only sustainably sourced materials and employs 170 working moms, who can knit from home and provide an income for their families. Plus, the company donates knitting kits to young adult cancer patients, since meditative knitting is proven to offer a host of therapeutic benefits. With rock solid values and free shipping, this brand’s beanies are sure to be your favorites all winter.
Why we love them
A female-founded company with a sense of humor and a commitment to giving back — what’s not to love? Christina’s colorful beanies have been a longtime favorite of KCM. We love how the Gunn Beanie is slouchy and relaxed, and for chilly fall nights or early commutes, this Bliss Headband is the perfect way to get some extra warmth without sacrificing your good hair day. Katie just got STIK’s 100% cotton Scotia Sweater, which she says is perfect for summer evenings and transition season. This sweater just keeps selling out, so keep an eye on the website for updates.
