It’s yarn club time again!

For the first club installment of 2022 we came out with a bundle that evokes a perfect day out at the lake, with its quiet freshness that you wish to linger in until the sun sets. When both the water and the sky around are painted in delicate pinks that slowly turn into faded lavender greys.

We thought of a picnic on the docks, watching sailing boats passing by, knitting and swimming slowly into this beauty.

The yarn base we chose is quite obviously Aestiva, and we built the theme around it, dyeing the shiny threads into a dedicated shade. The colorway you can expect is changing like the sunlight on the water surface, light and filled with delicate speckles recalling the woods, bright skies, flowers and waving waters.

Collaboration details:
We’ve been working on this edition with the sweet Ilaria @in_bottega and her charmingly imperfect embroideries, and asked for Alice @lunariacandles to add a scented creation that could carry along the memories of this charming atmosohere whenever we light it.

We paired the yarn color with the delicate shapes that Ilaria sews on her vintage fabrics, to create a special bundle that is both useful and beautiful, as we always try to do in our clubs… In fact, Ilaria used Aestiva threads for her embroidery, and hand sewed her naturally-dyed fabric into some precious bags, each unique.

We are so thankful for this collaborations that returns after a couple of years: we worked with Ilaria for our very first club, and so many things happened since then that it seems appropriate to go back to our roots now to create something else with the same spirit.

We put a mood board in our Instagram highlights that will introduce you to our image for this club, and we hope that you’ll virtually dive in with us.

Subscriptions are open until June 24 at midnight PST, and we only have a few spots left, so you’ll have a limited time to join us! Shipping is scheduled around July 8.
