Many of us have occassional creative outbursts, when we see a lovely dress in a fabric that we must have, or rush off to the store to get bright paint for that DIY project we wanted to get started on. Many times we don’t get much further than that. Now, if you have one of these creative intentions for the summer holiday, and if you want it to be cool, trendy and even sustainable, here’s a tip: zpagetti! Ever heard of it? It’s been travelling the creative world for some time, at least in Holland, so chances are you have, but just in case: zpagetti is left-over fabric in long threads of 1-2.5 centimetres average width. This allows you to knit using the largest knitting needles, which all means that this is a fast way to see the final result. And, it’s very trendy at the moment!
Hoooked specializes in zpagetti and has close ties with the fasion industry. The collection changes all the time, meaning your creation will be unique in many ways as the colour you’re using may not be available anymore by the time you’re finished with it. If you don’t have needles, you can also get these from hooked, also sustainable as made from bamboo.
And there’s more, basically you can get everyting you need for your creative project from hoooked, buttons, bag handles – you name it! Not sure where to start? There’s also a short guide book.
Now, let’s see how far we’ll get this summer…
