New York maker of DIY Mini Scarf Kit, Merino Wool Baby Blanket in Multiple Colors, Merino Wool Throw in Multiple Colors. Founder: Jessica Meyrowitz.
It's a Yummy founder Jessica Meyrowitz was taught to knit by her yoga teacher. Her teacher was giving a 4 week course on the basics of knitting - while emphasizing the meditative qualities and mindfulness that knitting provides. To say that Jessica loved it is an understatement. She enjoyed the process of knitting as well as the products that she was making with her newly acquired knitting skills.
One day, during an internet search - looking for knitting ideas - Jessica came across the idea of extreme knitting and she was hooked. Extreme knitting is knitting that is done with large needles and oversized yarn. She began creating throws for family and friends - using larger needles and her Yummy custom made, oversized, 100% merino wool yarn. The response to her blankets was so positive that she decided to turn her passion into a business and started It’s a…Yummy.
Jessica believes beauty is in the details. The quality of the wool she uses, the size and color of the yarn, and the weave of the knit contribute to the uniqueness of her creations. Additionally, Jessica hand knits all of her products to ensure each piece is a beautiful and usable work of art. Her philosophy at It’s a…Yummy is simple: Color + Texture = Yummy!!!
