DESCRIPTION

Hoagland Handmade features natural fiber knits. We source our yarn from local fiber farms, family mills, organic farms, indie dyers, and other sustainable sources to create hand-knit accessories for you, your family and your home.


OUR REVIEW

Upon hearing about the Equality Allies Program, Hoagland Handmade jumped to join immediately and enthusiastically. An extensive review of their practices found positive interactions with the LGBTQ+ community, including intentional inclusion of marginalized groups in all areas of production. The extra effort that Hoagland Handmade puts into sourcing products responsibly, including partnering with the National Forest Foundation, makes Hoagland Handmade an easy choice for all your fiber and knit needs.
