Knitting programme for schools.

Wool market leader Schachenmayr and bauchgefühl launched an initiative in 2014 to promote the teaching of handicraft techniques in German primary schools. Traditional craft techniques require creativity, fine motor skills and patience. And there’s nothing so beautiful to behold as the pride that children take in their own creations.

The website for the initiative, which has been online since April 2015, informs teachers, parents, pupils and specialist retailers on everything they need to know about the initiative.
