From Thien-Kieu Lam, the designer: "A campfire makes me think of respite in nature: a time to reflect and recharge. Similarly, I think that any sojourn that allows us to step away from routine is an opportunity to emerge with a refreshed heart and perspective."
The design of this scarf reflects the types of sojourns we might take.
On one side, cables create structured lines, like established city streets or well-worn trails through a forest. The reverse side reveals a more organic motif, like the meandering path of a spontaneous journey. The tapered ends are an acknowledgement that every sojourn has a starting point and a final destination.
The bigger sister of De Rerum Natura's Ulysse, De Rerum Natura's Gilliatt is a wonderful round, soft and satisfying fluffy yarn that shows off cables just as well as stockinette stitch. It's a delight to knit with - a perfect yarn for beginners as well as super advanced knitters - and comes in a range of gorgeous colors.
wonderful texture and rich color
I’m so happy with the feel and workability of this yarn. So far it’s knitting up perfectly for a mid to heavier weight pullover.
I have not yet used this yarn, but I can make a few small comments here. It's very affordable and even though I ordered it prior to the price increase, I would order it again at its slightly higher price. I think it's gorgeous, I love the shade of grey that I ordered and I can see that this yarn and I will be spending many delightful knitting hours together. And frankly, I love that it's wound into a ball, I can just pick it up and get started.
Using this yarn for a blanket. It's perfect for it as it's still quite affordable and comes in an amazing colour palette. I needed 4 matching blue tones. Found them... ;)
