Episode Info:

This week Felicia welcomes Coty Jeronimus to The SweetGeorgia Show. Coty is one of the  co-founders of Nomad Noos: a new mission-driven luxury yarn company that is dedicated to the concept of slow cloth and slow fashion. Coty and her co-founder Alessandra work to bring handspun, sustainably sourced yarn from Mongolia and Nepal to the hand knitting community. At the core of their mission is this question: What if your favourite knitted project not only gives you a good feeling but also has a positive impact on the world too?

Please join Felicia and Coty as they discuss the process of making beautiful and sustainable yarn!

  "...I was like wow you know I like to knit and I like yarns and I... really want to do something and to show that even with a small brand you can be transparent and you can be traceable and doing good... as a knitter you take time to knit and then have a supply chain where also this is valued.. that was in fact the seed to start Nomad Noos" - Coty on the reason behind the creation of Nomad Noos
