We at Knitted Wit wear our values on our hand-knitted sleeves, and want to make sure our LYS partners know where we stand on important topics. We are committed to anti-racism and dismantling white supremacy. We are pro-choice. We are LGBTQIA+ friendly. We believe in progressive values. We often use our platform to advocate for the things we believe in, and have a growing line of Colorways for a Cause, that include a 10% donation to organizations of our choice, which means that those skeins are 10% more wholesale.

Knitted Wit welcomes all folks into our communities, both virtual and physical, regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, size, or age. We are a hate-speech free zone, and will delete and block folks who promote hatred, racism, misogyny, and other gross things.
