Fable Handknit Sponsors Young Design Talent
Fable Handknit aims to encourage young designers to get to know the art of knitting: starting with sponsoring fashion design students at Ryerson University.
TORONTO, April 10, 2006- Fable Handknit was a proud sponsor of two graduating students from the Ryerson School of Fashion. Their work was showcased at the annual fashion show, Mass Exodus. Both students were provided with Pure Baby Alpaca yarn to create knitwear pieces for their final year collections.
Jentine Gootjes designed a bridal collection with knitted outerwear pieces for brides who plan their weddings in the fall or winter season.
Fanny Siong's collection was inspired by ancient Greek costume. Her daywear collection incorporated knitted cover up pieces that are both modern and expressive of ancient times.

Fable Handknit - Interview with Designer
By Natalie Zee, MAKE blog
April 17, 2006- Making Things is blog where high style and DIY meet. IT
was created by Andrea Tung, a former fashion designer based in Canada who
left the biz and turned her knitting hobby into a full-fledged yarn
business, Fable Handknit. Tung also designs stylish knitting patterns
based on Fable's baby alpaca yarn. Ideas and inspiration come from the
world of fashion and Tung likes the challenge of figuring out how she can
deconstruct it and make it herself. I got a chance to talk to Andrea Tung
to find out more about her new business, her creative inspiration, and her
favourite Fable knitting patterns.
