Meet the Maker

Woolly Bear Knits began in 2019 when Emily re-discovered her love of knitting. When she moved back to Minnesota from California, she wanted a way to stay warm so she could continue to spend time outside during even the coldest of winters, and discovered how warm and cozy merino wool is. Our knitwear features simple, minimalist textures that highlight the beauty of our high-quality fibers.
