We're thrilled to welcome another local dyer to the Made in Nashville area of our shop! In addition to carrying Camellia Fiber Co, Fringe Supply Co, Nutmeg Fibers & Old Rusted Chair, we're now a stockist for Modus Operandi!
We have two of Rin's yarns, each available in six gloriously botanically-dyed colors! Fingering, a 70/30 blend of superwash merino wool and silk, is a single-ply high twist that is silky smooth with a very slight sheen that adds amazing depth to the color. Lace, a 72/28 blend of kid mohair and silk, is lace-weight and non-superwash; it's fluffy, soft, and perfect for holding double to create a halo effect.
That's Rin in the photo up top! She's the owner and dyer behind Modus Operandi - and she'll be popping up in our booth at Fiber in the 'Boro on Saturday, November 2nd! Save the date!
Modus Operandi + Interlude
We took one skein of Fingering and one skein of Lace Mohair Silk from Modus Operandi, held both strands together and worked up a new shop sample of the Interlude Shawl. We love this one; it's lightweight, fully reversible and - in this yarn - incredibly drapey. Knit from the top down with garter stitch and simple fishnet lace, this one is a masterpiece of delicate simplicity! We love the styling versatility as well; wear it like a traditional shawl, scrunch it up and style like a scarf or place the crescent shape in the front like a cowl!
