New Color! Our Cashmere Ombré Wrap in Vermilion
In a burst of extraordinary color, our new Vermilion palette adds its voice to our chorus of Cashmere Ombré Wrap Kits! Rich and evocative, warm and sophisticated, Vermilion’s song ranges from deep carnelian bass notes to light peach blossom trills.
In partnership with our favorite cashmere yarn creators, Jade Sapphire, we designed our Cashmere Ombré Wrap around the idea of an octave of color: eight skeins of the finest Mongolian cashmere we have ever touched, dunked into a dye bath and pulled out at equal intervals. In whatever color you love, the result is pure knitting joy!
We’re thrilled to welcome Vermilion into the family. It seems to hit winter’s surprising notes of color: a patch of lichen on a log, an autumn leaf clinging to a branch, a red squirrel looking for its lost nut in a bank of snow. To us, it is perfectly warm in feel, look, and spirit!
