This month as we turn the page from winter into spring, the air is buzzing with the anticipated arrival of this year’s fresh batch of warm weather yarns. Some of the most popular cottons are stepping up their game by introducing a printed version. This is a relatively new manufacturing process which differs from the traditional method of immersing yarn into a vat of dye and allowing the entire fibre to absorb a desired colour. The printed method involves stamping a multi-colour pattern onto the surface of the yarn creating a mesmerizing mottled effect.
Evie Prints from Sublime is one of these cutting edge yarns, spun in Italy from the highest grade of Mako cotton. Much lighter than its volume would suggest, this yarn is hollow at its core with a plush texture and an appealing palette that will instantly warm the senses. The Sublime design team has put together a sensational selection of sixteen patterns to highlight the delicate beauty of this yarn and to co ordinate with the original Evie, available in solid tones. From kimono jackets, stylish vests and pullovers to dressy scarves, cowls and hats, take a peek at what this collection has to offer-
Kicking the season into high gear, Evie Prints from Sublime will be arriving in local shops with six artistically-created shades. Maia, Lana, Nuage, Monroe, Edie and Astrid (shown above) accompanied by The First Sublime Evie & Sublime Evie Prints Design Book 711.
Like a breath of fresh air after months of heavy layers, this simple waistcoat is lightweight and features a sweet twisted closure in place of a button. Edie (shown above).
