The Designer: Angela Plunkett

Angela’s main goal is to create unique, modern crochet patterns utilizing all natural fibers—100% organic cotton, wool, alpaca, and more. She sells some finished items made from her patterns as well. Angela is part of a homeschooling, baby wearing family of 7, trying to live as green and sustainably as they can. She has taught her older daughters to crochet and they will occasionally help her with her shop items, or watch the baby while she finishes a project.
