Despite their name, jellyfish aren't really a type of fish - they have no backbone and they absorb oxygen from water through membranes. Because jellyfish tend to just follow the currents of the ocean, they can be found around the world in every type of ocean water. They can thrive in warm tropical water or cold Arctic water. They've been found at the bottom of the ocean and near the surface. A collection of jellyfish are called a "bloom," "smack," or "swarm." Our handknit collection comes in yellow, peach, pink, mint and light blue!
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
