Inspiration behind the Collection

The Mindful Collection is manufactured by KnitPro International. It is a separate brand of the company's product range.

Knitting is all about mindfulness and indulging in the art that gives comfort to all crafters in a different way. The Mindful Collection is an initiative to bring all these aspects together and let everyone know about the wonders of our mindful products. In a way, it is a sincere approach to unravel the therapeutic benefits of knitting to the world and make them adopt this craft.

All the benefits of knitting mentioned on our website are drawn from experts' opinions and real-life experiences of crafters. There have been many studies that proved knitting is an art that 'heals'.

The teal colour is used consistently to identify it as a part of the mindful collection and also to differentiate it from other knitting products. The colour is also known for its relaxing and soothing effect.

Products

The knitting needles are made up of premium grade stainless steel.

Stainless Steel needles are impervious to wear and have low carbon imprint. Also, the finish on the needles helps the stitches glide more easily.

The Mindful Collection needles are superior due to their quality and the honest intentions with which they were manufactured. The presentation of the entire collection is all testimony to the fact that the needles are produced with a determination to bring the best knitting products to our respected customers. We are proud of our manufacturing staff whose aspirations for a good and healthy life and continued education for their family is made possible by their hard work.

This collection is also known as "Lace Knitting Needles" because of its extremely fine points. The needle tips allow for easier insertion of needles between stitches and are especially helpful when knitting lace patterns. Also, these fine points are suitable for all-weight yarns.

Finely honed tips make it easier to insert the needle in between the stitches. This is important when working with multiple fine yarns and stitches. This prevents knitting fine stitches together or having stitches drop off.

By prepackaging the sets at the time of production, we’re able to realize the economy of time and labour and we pass those savings on to our valuable customers.

There are many reasons a needle set from the mindful collection makes sense:
1) Ease of organization and having all tools in one place;
2) The needles ensure that your gauge is always consistent when knitting with a set.

Using Interchangeable Tips & Cables

This is also well explained with the packaging instructions. Ensure to use the included "key" to tighten the tips to the cable. If for any reason, they come loose, just re-insert the key and make sure to tighten securely.

End caps are used when you want to remove the needle tips from one or both sides on the connecting cable. They make sure your project does not fall off the cable and unravel.

Bags & Accessories

Knit Blockers are a patented product of KnitPro and speed up the blocking process in an ingenious way. These maintain even tension across the width of the pins, come with anchor holes through which a string can be pulled & pinned to the required tension and are perfect for blocking straight edges.

Packaging

The entire packaging is made of eco-friendly materials like fabric & paper. There is no plastic used in packaging of all products. After all, we all have to be 'Mindful' for our environment and planet.

Eco friendly packaging has many benefits. First and foremost is that it reduces the amount of waste that is disposed of in landfills. Eco friendly inks and dyes also eliminate toxic materials running into the local water supply.
