Scheibchens Garnträume – Buy Sustainable & Vegan Yarns

This is paid advertisement

What services or products do you offer?

I offer sustainable and vegan knitting and crochet yarns and a few patterns as well.

What inspired you to found your business?

I have been knitting and crocheting since my childhood.

It is such a satisfying and relaxing hobby!

When I started to look out for more sustainable yarns, I came across Natissea, a French producer of hemp yarns.

Hemp is an interesting eco-friendly material which has almost had fallen into oblivion since the industry started to use cotton.

Today, some sustainable companies are trying to help hemp make a comeback in fashion as well as in needlecrafts, but it occurred to me that there are not many hemp yarns available on the German market.

So, I decided to found Scheibchens Garnträume.

Currently my store does not only offer hemp yarns but also Lyocell/Tencel™ and GOTS certified cotton and wool.

What do you do to keep your business sustainable?

I am only offering eco-friendly and sustainable yarns and I don’t sell any synthetic fibres – not even recycled plastic or so-called ocean plastic – as these might end up in the environment in the form of microplastics.

I also try to keep a sustainable work-life balance.

I separate working hours and spare time, I keep myself healthy by eating well, exercising, meditating, and going for a walk as often as I can.

What’s one of the most surprising things that happened on your journey?

A woman I met on Instagram started designing patterns using yarns from my shop.

So we established a collaboration where clients who buy a pattern from her that recommends one of my yarns can have free shipping when they buy the corresponding yarn from me.

You can find her under the name of Garnja on Etsy and Instagram.

What advice would you give to someone who would like to start a sustainable business?

I would advise everyone who plans to start a business to gain experience in the field first, to build a network, and to establish collaborations.

Life is much easier if we support each other.

If people haven’t tried your services or products yet, where would you recommend for them to start?

I would recommend you to start with Natissea Damya – a yarn made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton.

If you are used to knitting or crocheting cotton yarn this will feel familiar, but you might like the slightly more robust character.

You could also try Natissea Pernelle, a yarn made of 100% hemp, which feels a little sturdy in the beginning but gets softer with handling and washing, just like linen.

Or you could try Phil Eucalyptus which is soft like silk but made of wood.

Get Your Personal Wheel of Colours

The Wheel of Colours is a traditional tool that can help us to understand what we need in certain situations.

We are all made up out of the same stuff, but everything is arranged uniquely in each person – which leads to us all needing different things in different moments.

If you’d like to find out what YOU need to start a project, to work with other people, to successfully finish something, to heal, to spark your creativity or what your unique gift is that you bring to the world, then the Wheel of Colours will help you to see this and yourself in a new and very practical way.

It will also show you how you can listen to your inner truth and that of others, what your most important lesson is and also what your most difficult challenge will be, that once you overcome it will bring you to the completion of your wheel – and allow you to start again in a smoother, more enlightened and balanced way.

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.

Are you a creatrix?

Have you ever felt like you don’t quite belong? That you’re somewhat different from the rest of the people around you?

That there’s a yearning deep down, a knowing, that you are capable of more? That while you know you are talented and can achieve a lot, something is somehow still missing?

Then you are a creatrix. And it’s time to start living it.

I, too, felt this way as long as I can remember
And I didn’t know what I was missing.

I had friends, a partner, a rewarding job. I was an artist, an activist and created real change.

Yet, I also felt lonely, uncertain, sometimes hopeless and often stressed.

No matter what or how much I did, it never felt completely right or like I had arrived.

Something was always missing.
