LN KNITS Founder Ellen Pulls It Off
It all started more than 10 years ago when LN KNITS founder Ellen Kegels decided to knit beanies for her family, friends and herself. Now she wears her Alpaca knitwear pieces, which include more than just beanies, with pride. Pictures of Ellen being wrapped up in large scarves, taking mirror selfies in pretty sweaters or showing off her baby belly in comfy dresses are all over her Instagram @lnknits. We find it authentic how she combines her own pieces and makes them a fashion statement. Here are some of her coolest looks. We absolutely love the yellow pieces 💛💛💛.

Ethical Production in Peru
In search of the highest quality fabrics, Ellen had to climb high. Because the baby Alpaca wool LN KNITS comes from Alpacas that live in the Peruvian Andes at an altitude of 3500m to 5000m above sea level. Not only the animals but also the workers are happy here. Child labor, human exploitation or bad working conditions? – No, thank you. Every LN KNITS piece is hand-knitted by talented Peruvian ladies under the best human conditions. In order to support their families, the women earn a fair & steady income. LN KNITS also created a daily childcare facility so that all moms can be reassured that their children are taken care of while making these beautiful cardigans, winter accessories, dresses and more. Have a look at these photos. We think that they speak for themselves.
