AlexCreates was founded by Alex, a self-taught fiber artist, and a Harlem native-born to Dominican/ Puerto Rican parents. A true perfectionist, Alex has knit and crocheted since the age of 13. His entrepreneurial spirit quickly turned his new passion into a business and in 2011, he opened his Etsy shop. Alex continued to gain fame for his installations and fabrications, which he’s done for artists like London Kaye, NaomiRag, Nathan Vincent, Knitsforlife, ishKnits, and Magda Sayeg. He also worked on the 2019 LGBT Center tree yarn bombs in Greenwich Village. All of AlexCreates yarn and hand-knits are made in Alex’s NYC apartment. Additionally, most of the wool in his shop is milled, grown, and dyed in the US. Interested in creating your own yarn-bomb, perfect for your next campaign, party, or living room?
