About Wet-it!

Our business adventure began in 2009 when I surprisingly realized that the super absorbent sponge cloths I used during my years growing up in Sweden were not a common commodity in US homes. After earning my business degree, I along with my husband and other family members, saw the opportunity to penetrate the US market with these unique, high-quality cloths. In just a few short years we have been met with an overwhelming response from retailers, as well as consumers - they all love our product!

What makes the Wet-it cloths so impressive is their absorption and bio-degradable qualities. The fabric is a tried and true Swedish invention from the 1940s and is made of a perfect blend of high grade cotton and wood pulp. The idea behind the Wet-it is to eliminate or reduce the amount of paper towel waste. We upgraded the cloths with our in-house designer patterns. Our Wet-its are like a reusable paper towel that far outperforms any sponges, paper towels or microfiber cloths becasues they are efficient, resuable, eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable and stylish!

Local Outer Banks Shopping

57762 NC Hwy 12 – Hatteras NC 27943 blue_pelican@mac.com

Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, North Carolina

From the ocean to the sound, and the night sky where you can still see the Milky Way, the Outer Banks and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore offer inspirational views, animals in their natural habitat, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, and enough wonder and beauty to inspire us every single day.

Jennifer Johnson, Blue Pelican’s owner and Hatteras Village native, creates most of the work in the shop. We also feature work from other local artists/artisans and craftspeople. When we want to share something that we can’t get locally, we look first for North Carolina crafters and then expand our search to American artisans making unique and limited production items.

And…the “and Yarn” part of our name?  We have two rooms of the 1950’s house that is home to our local small business, full to the gills with yarn and more.  We also have handmade buttons you can’t find anywhere else, kits for crochet, knitting and fiber arts.  You should make the trip to see us if you’re in the area, if only to see just how cleverly we have filled up the shop.  If you want to learn knitting, weaving, crochet, macrame or any other kind of fiber art, we have a teacher who would love to talk more with you.
