A few weeks ago, Brooklyn Tweed released it’s latest installment of Wool People, an annual collection that brings together independent knitwear designers from around the world.
Wool People 9 is an amazing mix of beautiful shawls and architecturally inspired sweaters all knit up in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and Loft. If you have yet to experience this gorgeous yarn, you must seek it out, immediately! I don’t think I’ve ever been in love with a yarn this much since I discovered 100% cashmere.
I was honored once again to be included in the Wool People collection. My contribution is Truss, a simple, slightly boxy drop shoulder cardigan with flattering stitch detailing at each side. The structure of the partial rib pattern allows the fabric to draw in just the slightest bit for a contemporary fit.
Even though it’s been a personal struggle for me to get back to designing the last few years, the mood boards for the Wool People collections have inspired me to dig deep and get back to work. When viewing the final product, I am overwhelmed by the beauty and amount of detail that goes into making everything just so. This makes the collaboration even more special to me.
Thank you to everyone who has left me a kind note about Truss, the response so far has been amazing and inspiring. Your support means more to me than you know.
