A box arrived from Rowan with Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze.
A multitude of distinct tones are blended, combined, striped, and fully united in the extraordinary Earth Stripe Wrap. Designed by internationally renowned textile artist Kaffe Fassett, it was first released by Rowan in 2007. A decade later, we’re still in awe of the masterful use of color—all hues aligning to create one outstanding vision.
Fourteen skeins in ten different shades of Rowan Kidsilk Haze knit up into this generous, fringed wrap. Over the years, several of the original Kidsilk Haze colors have been discontinued (sigh!). However, the good people at Rowan have found just the right substitutes! If you made it before, you may find yourself wanting to make it again.
Two different colors of Kidsilk Haze are held together in multiple combinations throughout, creating a lofty DK-weight fabric. And the super kid mohair/silk combination has that warm glow we’ve always loved. A truly timeless piece.
We are well stocked in Kidsilk Haze right now. Don't forget - I love to play with colours if you want to come up with a different combination.
The finished shawl is stunning. People will stop you as you are walking down the street - it is that beautiful.
That leaves a few more boxes to tell you about. I'm going to save that for tomorrow. Now I'm going to sit down and write a newsletter. We've moved from Constant Contact to Mail Chimp. Hopefully this means that everyone will receive the newsletters.
