Claudia Knoglinger will be coming in to teach the knitting. A few years ago Claudia got her hands on this beautiful Peruvian highland wool and a novice knitter was born. She has been making blankets and shawls for a few years and recently started using Loopy Mango's most luxurious Merino Wool and now there is no return. You will be hooked because you can't beat the texture and softness of this product.
Claudia studied Fashion Design and Marketing at the Art Institute of Seattle and opened her first store Rebel Rebel (now Reunion) in 2001, where she sold her eco conscious label La Poeme. A few years later, in 2008, she continued with her passion for beautifully designed clothing and accessories with the designer boutique Bernstein & Gold, where we carry prominent designer label from Europe, Canada and the USA.
