     Kenana Knitters
helps rural women find some much
     needed income utilizing their spinning and knitting skills.

     They use homespun wool produced locally in Kenya,
     and knit beautiful animals, kid's hats, scarves & mittens,
     and many other items.  The wool comes naturally in
     cream, browns and greys, from the multi-colored flocks
     of local sheep!  Other colors are obtained fromdying the
     wool with native plants, propagated and grown in their
     garden, so as not to adversely impact the environment.
