Stephen and Penelope

Stephen and Penelope

Stephen &  Penelope is a small wool shop based in Amsterdam with a big personality. Its owners, Stephen West, and Malia Joseph travel around the world looking for wools, accessories and, of course, inspiration. This way, they design, create and share experiences with their knitters’ friends and designers.

Recently, they have reached one of their dreams. They have created their own wool brand: West Wool. Its motto is quite clear: Textures are the new speckles. They first released their bases Bicycle and Tandem, a 90% mixture of merino Falkland, known for its softness, and 10% Texel, a Dutch wool, famous because of its curls.

West Wool’s palette is designed to knit with colorwork. It goes from the most sophisticated neuter tones to other more subtle tones combined with funny colors. With them, you will be able to knit the most daring projects using your favorite techniques.
