  • We've created some GORGEOUS kits for the new Leisurely Slip Knit Sweater pattern by Iris Schreier which she has written to show off the amazing new Ombré colourways, including our exclusive Tribe Ombré colourway which was created during this Instagram Live Session!

    The pattern will be initially released as part of a global KAL (knit-along) starting 10th December. Details of how to get the pattern and join the KAL are here. Or email us for the pattern after 10th Dec if you don't want to join the official KAL.

    This Slip Stitch sweater is knitted top down in the round, alternating two colourways. You can choose from 2 different necklines, and 3 sleeve lengths!

    These hand-painted yarns are an ingenious mash-up of variegation and self-striping, with much longer sections of individual colours than regular variegated yarns, but more blended transitions than self-striping yarns.

    Each kit contains:
    Merino Cloud yarn (an unbelievably soft and luxurious blend of Fine Merino and Italian Cashmere: Merino Cloud is unlike any other yarn!)
