Helena, familiar seller from Kuopio market place, knits quality woolsocks, mittens and half gloves for children and adults. At the Christmas Market there are also potholders and other Christmas themed handcrafts. With wollen products Helena prefers materials which can be washed in the washing machine.
Helena started making handcrafts as a child in her family´s farm by shearing wool from sheep. The wool was sent to spinning mill and the post brought back brand new wool threads for knitting. Enthusiasm for handcrafs and retirement age freetime let Helena maintain her entrepreneurship, playfully called “Sock Grandma”.
