These fashions revolve around Arizona's 5 Cs, and you can knit them yourself

It’s not uncommon to hear complaints about fast fashion and its wastefulness. But some like Sarah Wharton are all about slow fashion.

Wharton is the co-owner of Traveling Yarn, an indie, hand-dyed yarn company founded in 2017 here in the Valley.

And she is here to spread the gospel of knitting. Her new book, out on Valentine’s Day, is called, "Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona’s Five Cs," and it’s a collection of 17 knitwear and crochet patterns by 16 different designers.

The Show spoke with her to learn about the book, knitting and her love of yarn.
