Why enamel?

In a bid to be more eco-friendly, I don’t sell plastic stitch markers. Enamel lasts longer and is thus better for the planet. 

Keep your stitch markers dry so they don’t chip or rust!

I have lobster clasps available, so if you prefer those to lever back fastenings, contact me and I can replace it for you.

Your new stitch markers will be sent on a cardboard backing, carefully wrapped in a paper bag. If you order something else, they might shipped in a fully compostable mailing bag, or a paper envelope to keep things eco-friendly.

I want you to love your knitting and crochet projects. I want to help you keep track of your stitch count and I want to do this with the most fun and cute stitch markers and progress keepers.

Hello, I’m Eleanor and my goal in life is to be a part of your lovely hand crafting journey. 

I’ll do all of this without compromising on quality or my eco values: that’s why I only sell enamel (instead of plastic) stitch markers and progress keepers. Together we can make a difference to the planet and still love our knitting and crocheting!
