Gems for All

Hi Everyone,
We are excited to share with you lots of new–colors, kits, and projects. This week we are showcasing our family crown jewels in such an array of colors, we hear Meg may be back in the States reconnoitering for the Queen.

Crown jEWEls
The Fibre Studio has created these dynamic, 12-color kits for designer Casapinka’s The Crown Wools MKAL, which will begin July 19, 2018.

Each of our Crown jEWEls kits contains twelve, 1-ounce skeins of our SW Merino – Fingering base, which are approximately 140 yards each (~1,680 yards total in kit).

We are currently taking pre-orders for six color ways including Cherokee, Eastwick, Nouveau Rainbow, River Rock, Seaside, and Tourmaline. With these color options, everyone can be crowned a prince(ss)!

Not into mystery KALs? Perhaps you are more in tune with your….

Linear Moods
This large cushy wrap, by designer Xandy Peters, uses contrasting gradient yarns to create a stunning visual effect. Stripes provide color contrast; shaping bends the stripes into a chevron shape; and the addition of short rows changes the width of each stripe.

As the stripes cross the center line, the proportion of colors reverses from thick to thin and back again. Picking the colors for Linear Moods is a lot of fun. Makers can choose harmonious hues for a subtle look or pick wildly contrasting tones for a statement piece.

The Fibre Studio has amazing gradient options to create this lovely shawl. The maker can use one small (4 oz) and one large (7 oz) Fifty Shades of Gradient™ cake to construct this shawl. Another option is to use one small (4 oz) cake of Fifty Shades of Gradient™ with one 6-ounce Color Play Kit. As the designer noted, selecting ombré hues can produce a sutble look while using gradients that vary in actual colors can create an art piece. Here are some ideas showcasing three combo options in each grouping.

Top Left: Two gradient cakes in Black to the Fuchsia and Business Suit OR either of those gradient cakes with the Fuchsia color play kit.
Top Right: Two gradient cakes in Mallard and Juniper OR either of those gradient cakes with Undertow color play kit.
Below Left: Two gradient cakes in Dark Meadow and Latte OR either of those gradient cakes with Cherokee color play kit.
Below Right: Two gradient cakes in Mountain Thistle and Purpleicious OR either of those gradient cakes with Mountain Thistle color play kit.
The possibilities are always “to infinity and beyond” here at The Fibre Studio.
