Two new yarns for Spring from Ito! The Dankai Shawl uses Washi and Niji held together throughout the shawl. Washi is a lightweight paper and viscose yarn that knits crisp and clean for summer garments. Niji is a fine thread with long sequences of artfully plyed colors that will add a subtle wash to your scarf or shawl when carried along with Washi. It won’t change your gauge significantly. It also works well carried with a winter yarn like Isager Alpaca!
Intertidal is a brand new sweater from local designer Elizabeth Davis. The effortless style is slightly cropped, with a boxy shape and interesting ribbing details. We used Geilsk, one of our favorite wool/cotton blend yarns, for many seasons of wear!
Another local designer, Rebecca Reveal, has brought in a super cute hat for your little one: A Pixie Hat for You! Knit in only one skein of HiKoo Zumie, you will have this finished in a weekend.
