This magically illustrated story celebrates the power of friendship and kindness and teaches us to be proud of the things that make us unique.

When the warm winds summon the woollies of the world to the land of ice and fire, Lämmin the lamb sets out on an adventure to find out who she is and where she came from.

“Who Knit You” is a common question in Newfoundland and Labrador. It means “where do you come from and who do you belong to?” On her around-the-world adventure to find out “who knit her,” Lämmin meets friends everywhere she goes, realizing that your family can be whoever you choose. “We all belong together, and we’re knit by who we love.”
