This knit is named "Laumės" after the very oldest goddesses of Lithuanian mythology. They were believed to be faery seducers of men and protectors of women. These beautiful fairies descended from the sky to earth and lived in dewy fields or dense forests, near rivers, swamps, and lakes. They'd gather at night under the new moon — dancing in circles — to call the rain and create thunderstorms, and were considered guardians of nature. They often appeared naked or wearing fine airy clothing.

10€ Towards Your Knitter's Dream. What's that?
The Knotty Ones was started with the dream to provide stable jobs, fair wages and financial independence to women, mostly stay-at-home moms in rural areas of Lithuania, who otherwise would not have these opportunities in life.
The brand makes sure that their knitters earn enough to provide themselves and their families with the basics of a decent life — be it a warm meal on their dinner table, school supplies for their kids, medical care, clothing, paying electricity bills or housing. While they wish they could increase knitters' salaries beyond just a fair wage, the reality of operating a small independent label with design, marketing and premium material costs does not necessarily allow to do so.
The Knotty Ones wanted to create a platform that gave knitters a realistic shot at achieving their bigger, wilder dreams.
Now with each purchase, you can choose to donate €10 directly towards a dream of a woman who made your knit. If you wish to do so, you can choose to add a €10 donation to your purchase. It will go directly towards making these dreams come true. If you rather not, that's totally cool too. We are super grateful for helping create stable jobs and incomes for women.
