Brooklyn Tweed just came out with “Wool People 3,” which aims to tackle summer knits in wool.
It’s an interesting concept, really, because we see SO MUCH cotton, linen, and flax blends right now. Rayon’s another great choice for lightweight, not-as-hot yarn, but wool? I love it. Like anything, I struggle to entirely eliminate wool from my summer palette. The Pinctada I’m working on now is wool, and I chose it for the versatility. And let’s be honest– there are so many incredible, varying color options in wool. Especially superwash sock wool.
Go to the link above– there are some great images for this publication. This triptych is my favorite. It just screams beach bonfires, camping under the stars, and lawn parties:
That wrap! Aaaaaghhhhh I need it!
Have you ever looked at a Brooklyn Tweed Wool People issue? They’re PDFs, and gorgeous. The PDF opens full screen, and it’s about as close to looking at a real magazine as I can get on my computer. Great images, great graphics. I love it when every step of the process is well-designed, from initial literature to patterns. I think Brooklyn Tweed does this better than any other designer or group I know.
