If you’re searching for a yarn store with a professional service and knowledge of the products, FiinaNeule is the place to visit. This store specializing in high-quality, carefully chosen yarns and handicraft products is located on Simonkatu. The store’s current owner, Anne Laitasalmi, found her way to an ownership of a yarn store via a hobby. ”It was almost a necessity to turn my hobby into a profession since handicrafts took so much time from work,” Anne laughs. Despite of the small size of FiinaNeule, the store fits diverse variety of charming yarns in multiple colours, as well as many kinds of handicraft tools and accessories. New products arrive throughout the year but larger variety comes in during spring and autumn when the season changes. Desires and suggestions from the customers regarding the selection are appreciated and taken in!
”This summer’s new product is a yarn half made from recycled cotton and half from plastic bottles aka recycled polyester”, Anne mentions.
”Yarn manufacturers have increasingly started to produce yarn from recycled materials. Sure, it’s easy to recycle cotton, but the recycling of synthetic fibres has increased as well,” Anne says. ”Polyester is also used anew, and that’s a big thing. It’s also more common to research the yarn factories and their environmental impact nowadays. Ramifications of the yarns are major.”
Anne is in dismay about the prevailing throw-away society. ”There are clothes sold in stores for five or ten euros that endure for about two weeks and are then thrown away into trash. Full collections of clothes are also getting disposed of because they change frequently and new clothes are designed and made too rapidly. The discharges that result from the production and disposal are huge,” Anne sighs. ”I hope this is the kind of a topic that gets paid more attention from now on since huge amount of those clothes are being burnt all the time. Recycling and usage of the durable yarn and using clothes made from it should be preferred since those last much longer than two weeks.”
