Happy 2015 from Wildly Woolly and the women of Kenana Knitters

What a year 2014 was, it will be hard for 2015 to match it. But as a way of looking to the future, we thought we'd remind ourselves and you, of what Wildly Woolly stands for and looks to achieve by it's existence.

So early 2014, Wildly Woolly Ltd started up, and things were off to a flying start... within a few months we were also the wholesalers for Kenana Knitters toys in the UK. Which unfortunately was due to the closing down of Kenana UK. However we were honoured to be asked to take on the role and are looking forward to building new relationships with great businesses.  

Wildly Woolly's desire was to become a business that supports and upholds the ethos of Kenana Knitters, and by that we needed to be:
  • Ethical & Socially responsible
  • Natural
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Offer great customer service
  • Approachable
  • Honest
  • Unique
We've done our best, and I hope you feel we have too. We will continue to strive on all of these points but some in particular we'd love to remind you of, our packaging is all recyclable as well as FSC sourced materials ('In order to be given FSC certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner'). Our social medias like Pinterest and Facebook feature exciting ideas and ways of the three R's - Reduce Reuse Recycle, as well as links and tips for Ethical shopping and cleaner ways of life. Don't forget to follow us or like our page if this is something that is also close to your heart.

We wanted to share the wonderful story of Kenana Knitters with as many of you out there as possible, and we're still working on it, but we'd like to thank you too for helping to share the love as without you all, life would be a lot more difficult for these women in rural Kenya. Can I remind you here, especially those that don't receive our newsletters that Kenana Knitters now supports around 600 women in the local area. Woohoo and thank-you!

So looking forward into 2015 we'll be bringing you new products, we've already got some one on the website - this new spider snow leopard who is just crying out for a child to love:


We will also keep you updated on the women in Kenya and any news or exciting venture of Kenana Knitters (psssst they are getting a new website soon, we can't wait! We'll let you know when it's up and of course we'd love to know which products you'd like us to start selling as there's so many to choose from that we can't stock them all - but we'd like to built it up!).

And finally, don't forget to share with us the cuddles that our lovely Knitter Critters are getting from their new best friends. Post it on our Facebook page, or Instagram. Or otherwise feel free to email it to us and we'll pass the message back to the Knitters themselves.

Thank-you and all the best for 2015, we look forward to the coming year together!
