This Artist Is Making A Fortune Selling Scarves And Blankets She Knits Without Needles.
Anna Marinenko is using her bare hands to keep people warm. Based in Kiev, Ukraine, Marinenko came across a huge ball of merino wool yarn, without any knitting needles around her, she chose to use her hands. Marinenko weaved and stitched a large, luxurious, soft blanket she called Ohhio. Little did she know this was the birth of a business.
Her chunky blankets look more like clouds. Her designs are warm in the cold, winter months and light in the summer despite each cover weighing up to 10 pounds. Marinenko has added other products in her collection like cowls, oversized scarves, pet bed, chunky cardigans, and various sized blankets. Her motto is simple, "I try to create simple and honest things."
Marinenko spends hours making one Ohhio blanket.
One stitch alone is 3 inches thick.
Every product is handmade using 100% merino wool. The warm fibers are breathable and controls odor.
She makes cowls and oversized scarves for men and women.
Hard to believe these enormous stitches are all handmade by Marinenko herself.
