You might recall the photoshoot sneak peeks in March on instagram or the #kwstyleit challenge at TNNA where we previewed our latest yarn and some of our latest designs for the upcoming fall season. the time has come to finally share it with you all: we’re excited to announce the re-working and reintroduction one of our favorite Fibre Company yarns, Knightsbridge!
A lovely 2-ply blend of 65% baby llama, 25% merino wool + 10% silk, Knightsbridge features a heathered effect due to the spin and dye process. Knightsbridge comes in 14 different colors, perfect for the upcoming fall knitting season.
To accompany the re-release of this amazing yarn, the KW Design Team joined forces with 5 other independent designers to produce a 15 piece sweater and accessory collection.
