It’s that fabulous fiber-centric time of year again. Hip Hip Hurray for Fall! This week we want to talk SAFF, secret color ways, splendid kits for shifts and feathers, and treats (no tricks) of course! After all, Halloween is just around the corner!
A Return to Wicked and Sleepy Hollow
Fly your freaky fun flag and choose a Fifty Shades of Gradient™ in color ways Wicked (below left) or in Sleepy Hollow (below right). We bring these colors back a few weeks each autumn for those of you who want to make something “For Good.” Available in both 4 oz (approx 560 yards) or 7 oz (approx 980 yards) cakes of squeezable, fluffy 2-ply fingering 100% Superwash Merino yarn. Makers will find that adventure awaits in every skein.
Birds of a Feather Shift Together
One of our latest and favoritest is the Birds of a Feather (below right) shawl by designer Andrea Mowry. We’ve created the softest kits for this project and think this is a textural project that will bring hours of pleasure to the maker.
Another of our newest addKNITctions is The Shift, a cowl pattern (top left) also by designer Andrea Mowry. We’ve created some fun, limited-time-only kits for this project as well. We chose our Studio Solo fiber in color combinations surely to fool the viewer into thinking this cowl was woven and not knit. We admit we’re obsessed!
This is one of the largest fiber festivals in the southeast and is a perfect opportunity to schedule a girls’ day out or even a weekend retreat. Be prepared to learn about fiber-producing live stock, take classes, shop, and generally have a total blast.
The Fibre Studio loves to offer a mystery color way each year at SAFF. This year, we took our inspiration from our own greater Charlotte, North Carolina area with our newest offering Catawba in our Fifty Shades of Gradient™ line. The color way is beautifully-hued and reminiscent of the flora, fauna, and waterways in the area. It may just be our favorite SAFF mystery color yet.
We are currently taking online pre-orders until October 19 and can bring those pre-orders to SAFF if instructed during checkout. Order yours today because the inventory we bring to SAFF often goes very quickly.
