Emmanuelle "DoucesLaines"


I'm a knit loving bi-national French and Swiss woman, with enough projects to last my entire life ! I live in the beautiful France, Europe, in an amazing Natural Regional Park (Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura), with a very few houses and LOTS of forests and nature. I have a university degree in French literature and linguistics (but I have not studied English, and I do not speak fluent English, even if I love this language), I did theater at the university, and contemporary dance.

I love to create warm and refined clothes and accessories, that can't easily be found anywhere : with pure and warm wool, mohair, alpaca, to make your life sweeter ! Also with organic and local wool which is very difficult to find !
All I do with yarn and fabrics, I learned with my mother and grand-mothers, when I was a child and a young woman ! Today, I have quite a lot of needles from my grand-mother. I use them often even though I prefer circular needles, and especially the US Kit Denise :-)

Now, it's time to create eco-friendly handknitted accessories : shrugs, hats, scarfs, mittens, gloves, socks and sweaters for you, because I love the natural warm and soft wool and it makes me happy to do it for you !
I work with great care. You have the assurance that all my knitted clothes are handmade with love by me, well designed and comfortable !

Why eco-friendly & organic ? Because the major part of my handknits are made with sustainable pure new wool or cotton. I try to create without using synthetic fibers.
