The story

Do you know the Kenana story ? In the farming community of Njoro. a group of Kenyan women, growing larger every day in number; gathers wool from the Kenana Farm and now all neighboring farms as the need demands. They wash, dye with all natural plant dyes, and mothproof with natural Pyrethrum Flower (like a daisy) all of the wool and then spin it on old bicycle wheels! They then produce the most precious hand knit products available. Starting with just a dozen women, the group has now grown to over 300 knitters and 400 spinners; and is increasing on a daily basis. They are good at what they do, and they LOVE their work. Each lady signs her name to the story card that accompanies the product as she completes a piece.
