        Does the Knitter’s Backpack have pockets? 
        • The Knitter’s Backpack was designed with no interior pockets for a smooth knitting experience. The Moon Pouch was developed to hold any accessories or non-knitting items like a phone, keys or wallet. It fits perfectly at the bottom of the regular-sized Knitter’s Backpack so it can be tucked safely under your project. 
          What is a good sock base?
          • Maiden is a great sock base! It's Nylon and Wool content make it durable and ideal for socks.

            What is the difference between a moon pouch and a moon belt? 
            • A Moon Pouch is a simple zippered pouch that fits snugly at the bottom of the Knitter’s Backpack. The Moon Belt is also a circular zippered pouch but it is deeper than the Moon Belt and is a bag rather than a pouch. It has a front “pocket” that allows for access to your yarn and project without opening the zipper and provides for a smooth knitting experience. It comes with a cotton webbing belt and can be worn as a hip pouch, cross body or carried as a wristlet. 
              Are you a store? 
              • Yes! Our SE Portland Studio serves as a neighborhood LYS, office and production dye studio.
                Where do you source fibers for your yarn? 
                • We work with several different companies to source our wool and yarn. Please review the product description of each base for more information. 
                  How do I wash my Knitter’s Backpack, Moon pouch and moon belt? 
                  • Spot cleaning is the most recommended method. Canvas bags can be hand-washed in lukewarm water and then reshaped and air-dried. Avoid using soap or other cleaning agents that might bleach or stain the fabric.
                    Do you have non-superwash yarn?

                      Do you have any vegan products?
