About Along avec Anna

At Along avec Anna, our mission is to help knitting play a creative, calming, and confidence-building role in people’s lives.

We create ethical yarn, unique patterns, and custom accessories for beginners and experts alike.

Our natural fibre bases (fingering merino, silk mohair and DK merino) are entirely cruelty free and certified, and we took care to work with spinning mills that respects animals, humans and the environment, thus reflecting our own values as a company.

Our patterns—including accessories, women’s garments, and children/baby clothes—are easy to follow and pair perfectly with our yarn. Authentic, accessible, sustainable and creative, our approach is both human and educational. It is based on step by step, detailed patterns and accessible to as many people as possible. Our newest designs are all size inclusive, and the old ones are currently reviewed to include more sizes.
