PEGGIE EHLERS is the creative inspiration behind NUNA KNITS. As a maker of yarn of all things wool, her world is enveloped with knitting, researching trends, spinning, teaching, and creating breed specific blended yarns/garments for the Nuna brand, private industry designers and farmers.

What distinguishes Peggie from others in this profession of expertise is her ability and passion to bridge the farm to fashion trend. This bridge has been achieved through the history of the world’s plant and animal fibers, art and science of hand spinning and composing a wool education program for children. This knowledge along with a 2009 ASI wool classer certification enables Peggie to design products from specific wool breed types and plant varieties that incorporate all that we live with in fashion and life style.
