One of our very favorite things about knitting and crocheting is choosing a color palette. The anticipation of waiting for the yarn to arrive is a close second. We invest a significant amount of time in selection of yarns and colors. The season, design of the piece as well as nature’s palette are key considerations. Pinterest, style books, designers, images and even paintings have all been useful in our process.

Yarn selection follows and we strive for natural fibers as much as possible. Not all yarns are created equal; some shag and others loose color after a while. And so, we take the time to work with well-respected yarn producers from all over the world. We’ve thus far used yarns spun in Japan, Germany and Italy in addition to those produced locally here in the USA.
We do not purchase yarn in bulk as we are a small atelier striving to produce unique pieces. Our goal is to create projects that demonstrate craftsmanship and highlight the natural beauty of the yarn itself. In the end, our adventures in design and knitting are undergirded by careful selection of exquisite yarns in stunningly saturated colors.
