Hand-knitting is an inherently emotional art. The hand is sensible to our every mood, our personality and heartbeat, and will always leave a lasting imprint on each piece.
Durana (Peruvian knitting needle)
Before we knit each of our pieces we always have to do some tests first with the yarn and the pattern, which we have decided to knit. It’s a necessary step always.
In our case, this turns into one of the most crucial and delicate moments in which it is important to be patient and to take time.
Getting involved and observe closely. And, it is then when we must determine the right tension needed for knitting each piece, in other words, the ‘durana’. For us, this is not simply a number, but more importantly, a name: Sabina, Lorgia, Alejandrina, Nélida,...
Each knitter has her own pulse, her own heartbeat – unique, not precise – that varies with her emotions and thoughts and which, in the end, will decipher the end result.
Throughout the years and our close collaboration, admiration and getting to know one another, we are almost certain about which number of durana is ‘the one’ but above all, we love when the time comes to guess the name: ‘Tension Feliciana’ 18/04/18. We smile.
