The gals of the Fibre Co. have created a new yarn this summer to add to their line of luxurious fiber blends that we know and love. We'd like to introduce you to Knightsbridge. Our skeins arrived in the shop just last week.
This beautiful and delightfully soft worsted weight yarn is a plied blend of 65% Llama, 25% Merino, and 10% Silk. It has wonderful drape, stitch definition and shine. We were sent a care package earlier this summer so that we could preview a few skeins and try out the yarn. Kate cast on for a chic pullover sweater designed by Carrie Bostick Hoge: Bronwen.
It features a very simple bottom up construction with picked up stitches for the sleeves. It is a perfect pattern for those who haven't yet tried sweater knitting. Our sample is so luxurious that Theresa is considering casting on for one of her own this fall. It would be her first sweater, and we know that this simple v-neck will look terrific on her.
This pullover is part of a new pattern collection that has been released by Kelbourne Woolens. The Knightsbridge Collection brings together 15 patterns from some of our favorite designers that all highlight this beautiful new yarn. You can have your choice of all kinds of projects from sweaters to accessories.
We hope that you can visit us at the shop soon to take a look at our Bronwen sample, as well as the beautiful skeins of Knightsbridge. It is possible that they just may convince you to start a sweater of your own!
