What is a mindless knit?
HANDCRAFTED TO PERFECTION
Mindless Knits are designed to complete the colorwork for the knitter; no changing yarns, no weaving in of many ends, no stressful color combinations to make, no purchasing of several yarns to need only a few yards.
Perfect for those times you can only be only partially focused on your knitting, and great for new knitters who would like something that looks more complicated than it really was! The yarns are dyed to the Mindless Knits patterns, but work (within reason) with similar patterns available by other designers.

A 100% superwash merino wool. It’s our favorite weight for our Hat/Cowl yarn, as it is very thick and warm. It’s very soft and a dream to wear next to your skin.
A 4ply 100% superwash merino wool, this yarn passes the 6 year old comfort test. It’s a wonderful weight that is perfect for any of our projects, but is our favorite as a shawl.
A 100% superwash merino wool. It is a two ply that feels absolutely squishy and generous in your fingers. It’s baby soft, too! It is recommended for any project, but is our favorite knitted into a sweater, the weight is light and wearable.
An 80% superwash merino wool mixed with 20% Nylon for the strength you want in a pair of socks. It’s very durable and very soft. You’ll love the way they feel on your feet, especially after the yarn blooms from a few washes.
Who are Mindless Knits?
Mindless Knits was founded in 2018 by Laura Hoffmann, an independent dyer from Castle Rock, Colorado.
She came by yarn dyeing though a lifelong love of fiber arts. Her first steps into working with dye began in 2006, during a college course, and she has adored anything to do with Knitting, Spinning, Weaving and Dye ever since. Laura is a dyed in the wool process knitter and always has a multitude of projects sitting around, just waiting for finishing work. So, the thought of a project that minimizes finishing to a five-minute weaving in of ends seemed like a great gift to the world.
Laura is a wife and mother of two and is grateful to have a career that can be so fulfilling and creative and is also flexible to the needs of her young family. She could not have done it without their support and the support of a group of knitters through Ravelry. She is ever grateful for their support, friendship, and offers for test knitting!
