The Story of MYO Make Your Own
Modern craftsmanship with sustainable materials
MYO Make Your Own was started in the spring of 2020 with a simple idea; to make crafts sustainable and more accessible to anyone who wants to learn to create.
In MYO's new yarn store you will find, among other things, bamboo yarn for various small projects as well as 80% recycled cotton yarn for crochet and macrame. These are made from leftovers from clothing production in Italy, and get their colors from the fiber pulp that is mixed together - meaning they are not dyed or processed afterwards.
MYO Make Your Own is founded in the mountains of Sweden, in a small village called Åre. The idea of MYO started after Oonas own several tries of learning how to crochet and realized how hard it was to get the right equipment and to find matching instructions.
"I started crocheting a few years ago, after I got my first "bamboo cleaning cloth" as a present from a friend. That one was so good that I wanted to try to make one myself - and literally got hooked. After that I started making other stuff too, like laptop covers and baskets, trying different materials and models. But it has't always been easy to know which yarns or hook sizes to use for what, it's been a lot of trial and error."
"With MYO I want to make it easy for everyone to start creating make easy and beautiful home products, with well-made tutorials and matching packages filled with all you need to succeed.”
