We have extraordinary good news.
We’re over the moon to announce the designer for the next MDK Field Guide, No. 18.
She is a star in the fiber world, where she is a bold innovator as both a designer and a dyer.
Her exquisite yarns are beloved by knitters and designers all over the globe. We have been proud to carry them in the MDK Shop since the start of our business.
And as a community leader and visionary, she’s forging a path to the world we long to see, immediately. She’s the kind of person who sees a need, and gets busy.
Maybe you’ve guessed—who else could it be?
Karida Collins, the founder and owner of Baltimore’s Neighborhood Fiber Company.
karida is also a frequent knitwear model. Here she’s wearing Rebound, a new design by Ruth Boelkins in NFC Organic Studio Worsted (spoiler alert—coming soon to the MDK shop).
