Hi, I’m Juli, the creator behind the textile character brand @lossospechosos for the last 12 years.

Some of my favorite techniques are embroidery,…

When I’m not running experiments at the lab, I’m sitting on the sofa playing with yarn and handicrafts. Most of the time, my hands are full of crochet projects, some knitting attempts, occasional sewing, and a lot of cooking! Crochet potholders are definitely one of my greatest obsessions. I…
