In honor of the first annual Fiberlicious Tour, Stephen West and Steven Berg have been collaborating with dyers across the country to create some exclusive commemorative colorways.

Stock is extremely limited and will be available for presale this weekend (June 28 and 29).  Get a preview and do your shopping before the Westknits workshop on July 1!  Want a little sneak peek?

tosh-dead-sexy

As you probably know, we love Madelinetosh.  Joining our vast collection of Tosh colors is the commemorative colorway “Knitting is Dead Sexy”.  StevenBe describes the color as “intense, colorful and vibrant – not for the faint of heart”.  We will be receiving a limited number of skeins in Vintage, Tosh Merino Light and Sock.

WildHareFiberStudio

Brand new to ImagiKnit is Wild Hare Fiber Studio yarns, arriving in 5 special colorways.  Pinnacle is a merino wool sock yarn with nylon for durability.  We are counting down the minutes until we can see these fabulous Zebra colorways in person!

SinCityCollection

RedLightDistrict

Inspired by Stephen West’s home in Amsterdam, The Red Light District collection (by Three Irish Girls) blends coral and orchid with smokey gray for a naughty edge. The Sin City collection seeks its inspiration from the opulence and lavishness of Las Vegas. Purple, copper and olive blend together in a seductive combo.

Evocative_alchemy

Ambrosial_alchemy

Alchemy has developed two colorways just for the tour.  Evocative is a bright blend of orange, pink and red.  Ambrosial is a cooler combination of green, blue and purple.  We have ordered both colors in the bases Silken Straw and Haiku.  Silken Straw is a 100% silk tape yarn that softens as you work with it.  Haiku is a luscious silk and mohair blend.  Ideally you combine both yarns to make a heavenly fabric.

 

On Monday, the boys will show you what you can create with these luxury yarns.  There is still room in our Trunk Show Extravaganza and Westknits workshop, so give us a call to register!
