The June musical colorway from Eternity Ranch Knits is bound to become one of your favorite things, especially if you’re obsessed with all things Family Von Trapp. This blue/green/white blend is available on 463 yards of Merino/nylon.
I’m not sure what’s in the water there, but here’s another exciting new indie from Germany. Frida Fuchs is run by sisters Jana and Julia, with yarns inspired by Berlin, where they grew up knitting and painting, and Zurich, Switzerland, where Jana now lives and dyes. Julia runs the business from Berlin and comes up with the colorway names, such as Schlafmohn and Koriander.
Backyard Fiberworks is a new-ish addition to the indie dyer scene, but Alice perfected her range of colors, inspired by hues found in the backyard (though, of course, she dyes out of her kitchen). They pop on Alice’s selection of bases, which include Merino and MCN and Merino/silk blends. And, as I learned when I met up with her in NYC recently, she has some exciting wooly projects up her sleeve…
The Tidal Breeze skirt from Knit Eco Chic is inspired by receding waves and ripples of sand, a perfect summer knit. It includes a front cable and lace panel and a stockinette body that wraps around the back. It would be a great beach cover-up, but you’ll want to wear it everywhere.
