Sneak Peek: Fiber Co.'s Knightsbridge

When Julie went to TNNA this spring, she was able to get her hands on the Fibre Co.'s newest addition to their yarn collection: Knightsbridge.  This luscious worsted weight blend of 65% baby llama, 25% merino, and 10% silk is in production this summer and will be officially released in September.In conjunction with the launch of this lovely new yarn, the Kelbourne Woolen designers have created a collection of 15 new patterns for sweaters and accessories that make the most of these skeins.  Knowing how passionate we are about creating shop samples that can give you a clear sense of how our yarns perform, Courtney and Kimberly offered to send us a few skeins to play with along with a couple of patterns from the new collection.This means that as soon as our order arrives, you'll be able to see knit samples from the collection right alongside the new yarn and patterns.  We can't wait!Kate received a little care package from the shop yesterday that held eight skeins of the Winesteeple colorway.  It is a rich heathered color that has hints of chocolate brown and a deep plum. knightsbridge1She has elected to work on Browen, a bottom-up v-neck pullover designed by Carrie Bostick Hoge. DSC_0017She cast on without delay.  These skeins are so deliciously soft it would be a crime not to knit with them.  The stitches just fly along the needle.  This fiber blend is as silky as it is soft, and even the dark color reflects light with a beautiful luster.The Knightsbridge yarn and the pattern collection to accompany it will be in the shop after Labor Day.  We look forward to inviting you to the shop to see the new collection.  In the meantime, you may want to visit our current selection of Fiber Co. yarns and Kelbourne Woolen samples.  You will become as avid a fan as we are.
