We produce our Ethno knits in small batches and they are on first-come-first-served basis. Please note that our Ethno in Brown is currently on pre-order and will be shipped in late February. Ethno in Off-White can be ordered regularly.
Ethno traces the roots of our Baltic culture, with intricate tonal symbols traditionally used to keep you balanced and in harmony. Inspired by unique Baltic ethnographic patterns, it's perfectly oversized and promises to keep you twice as cozy. Ethno's made from alpaca wool sourced from social farms in Peru. We haven't used any chemical dyes: those colors are the actual alpaca shades. Fluffy, fuzzy and impossibly warm, Ethno's prolonged sleeves are the final cherry on top. This genderless knit was designed as part of our collaboration with our fav Lithuanian designer, Eglė Žiemytė.
100% Undyed alpaca wool (mulesing-free)
Please note that this knit is extra oversized and we recommend to size down. The sweater is wide in all sizes, and the biggest difference between sizes is the length and sleeve length.

Now with each purchase, you can choose to donate €10 directly towards a dream of a woman who made your knit.
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.
We make sure that our 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 we wish we could increase our 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 us to do so.
We wanted to create a platform that gave our knitters a realistic shot at achieving their bigger, wilder dreams.
