Rauwerk

Rauwerk began when friends offered Christine, a keen knitter, the fleece from their flock which she decided to have spun into yarn. Christine also came across a small shop in the creative centre of Munich which used to be a yarn shop, and decided to revive it with her large quantity of farm-assured merino yarn. Rauwerk has since grown, and Christine specialises in stocking ethical and environmentally-friendly yarns.
