Ohhio Braid is a design material perfect for bulky knits. Inspired by the softness and scale of unspun merino wool, Ohhio has created an alternative that is at the same time more durable and practical, as well as suitable for vegans.The resulting material consists of a soft hollowfibre filling surrounded by a smooth, seamless cotton shell. This combination allows Braid to be both soft to the touch and sturdy enough to withstand many rounds in the washing machine. It holds whatever shape it is knit into well, and can be repurposed into another project.
Ohhio Braid is perfect for beginner knitters and pros alike. Any novice will find that it’s easy to learn due to its scale and a seasoned knitter can easily transfer their skills to the voluminous stitches that Ohhio Braid makes.
In August of 2017, Ohhio Braid received a Red Dot Award, the most prestigious distinction in design. This is the first Red Dot awarded to Ohhio.
