September Luxe Review: Knit Collage


As summer draws to a close, we're ready to grab needles, hooks and cozy yarns to bundle up in style in cooler weather. This quarter, we're inspired by lots of texture, soft colors and a bit of sparkle!



For this edition of Yarnbox Luxe, we've teamed up with Knit Collage, a company whose yarn line focuses on the beauty of handspun fibers to nurture the creative spirit. Every yarn is created by a small group of women in Punjab, India who card, spin and dye all the yarn by hand. Each skein takes several hours to create, resulting in a one-of-a-kind work of art.




Spun Cloud is a fluffy and soft 100% wool super bulky yarn with sparkly lurex plied around it in a subtle thick and thin texture. Each giant 200 gram skein contains 100 yards in solid colors. Cast Away is a bulky weight 100% wool which comes in a range of neutrals with bits of bright colors handspun throughout. The finished result is a whirlwind of color in a soft textured yarn. Each 100 gram skein contains approximately 70 yards of yarn. Combined, you'll have 170 yards for a cozy textured garment!

We've included two designs from the Knit Collage pattern team. Knit designer Susan Sheby and crochet designer Toni Lipsey created two wraps which combine both yarns for lots of texture and a hint shine.




To keep your finished piece always looking new, we've included a bottle of Unicorn Fibre scented Fibre Wash, designed to clean and soften luxury fibers. The included Lilly "Save Our Sweaters" Brush will remove lint and pills, keeping your treasured finished item tidy no matter how often it's worn!
