Sanibel: Funny story...When this yarn arrived from the mill in Italy, it was labelled with the mill's Italian name for it, Brillo. Admittedly NOT a word in English that we embrace to mean something soft, wearable and sophisticated, though Sanibel is all these things and more. Is it novelty? Is it "fashion yarn"? Neither word seems to fit. The tonal colors are like light and shadow reflected in a summer creek, and the glimmer running through it is the mica glittering just under the surface. The twelve colors range from bright to sophisticated, in coral pink, deep amethyst, and incandescent gold (among others).
Seedling Handpaint - 100% Organic Cotton - 110 yards/ball
Seedling Handpaints: When this yarn first arrived almost a year ago, you could hear the squeals of delight as each colorway was pulled out of the box. Seedling started out as the "little sister" to Sprout, a finer version of the 100% organic cotton, chunky bestseller. It has since earned standalone status for its finer gauge, unusual texture, deep colors and the weightless fabric it creates. The handpainted line was a no-brainer, in eight gorgeous colors.
Of course we have dedicated booklets for both our new yarns, Sanibel and Seedling Handpaints. Devotees of Silky Alpaca Lace will be happy to hear that we have an entire booklet dedicated to it, for the first time ever! Also find booklets for Allegoro, Classic Silk, Cotton Bam Boo, Cotton Bam Boo Print, Cricket, Firefly, Katydid, Provence, Seedling, Soft Linen, Solstice, and Sprout.
For the crocheters amongst us, you'll find crochet designs in six booklets, from the gorgeous vest Couchette from the Soft Linen booklet, Locomotive to the cover garment from our Classic Silk booklet Riverside, Canoe.
