We are so excited to be a part of Knitted Wit's HerStory Club again in 2021. Each month Lorajean and her team at Knitted Wit will dye a color inspired by a woman (or non-binary, female presenting, life as a woman) who was the first to achieve something incredible. The color for July is called Waling-Waling. It is inspired by Geraldine Roman, who is a force to be reckoned with in the political landscape of the Philippines, where she was the first trans person elected to Congress in 2016. Roman's life and political philosophy embody the term "intersectional." She fights for Indigenous rights, she fights for LGBTQIA+ rights, she fights for health rights and veteran's rights and environmental stewardship and sustainability. She truly believes that in order for anyone to succeed, everyone has to have the chance to succeed. She's the kind of person you want at the table with you, gently and lovingly steering conversations to difficult places, and leaning in to the humanity in everyone. Read more about this incredible woman in the love letter to her here. 

Knitted Wit Sock is a blend of 80% Super Wash Merino and 20% Nylon. Each 4 ounce skein has 400 yards.
