New Texture

Amy Tyson

We just launched this new pattern, Twisp 5, in our Spring Collection. I was thinking about making something thin that would go great on stairs. We tried several combinations to come up with this group of ribbed stripes.

Ocean's Wake

New Texture. 

I've been wanting to expand beyond the standard colors of cotton that we use for the warp (vertical yarns). We've created a couple of new patterns that use wool for the warp, a combination of thin white and thick dark grey natural. It gives a great texture to the background color group. This one is called Ocean's Wake.

With this weave structure, a bit of the pattern color shows up in the background. You can see this more clearly in the stripe version below. When the triangle is turquoise, the background shape has a little turquoise in it. 

If we wanted to get rid of that effect, we could make long floats on the back. But I think it's part of the charm.

New Pattern - Transit

Amy Tyson

This pattern is called Transit and it's a non directional take on our Pueblo pattern. The more dense arrow shapes create a interesting and dynamic horizontal stripe.

See below an older Pueblo sample with arrows going one direction. It's more of an all over pattern.
