When you think of the ultimate in luxury yarns, which fibres instantly come to mind? Is it merino, baby alpaca, mulberry silk, and baby llama, just to name a few? Well, this season we have all your favorites spun into the most luscious array of yarns under our house brand- Diamond Luxury Collection. Our Canadian team of designers have put together a selection of knockout contemporary styles to compliment these naturally scrumptious yarns dyed to perfection in the hottest hues. These designs are now available for purchase online by clicking on the pattern link.
Here is a sampling of the Diamond Luxury Collection for F/W-
Cowl Slipover- Herringbone stitching plays up the tweed appearance of this yarn with a light and airy effect. The long loose neckline and sleeveless appeal of this style make it an easy pull on layer over a turtleneck or t shirt for extra toasty warmth. Knit in Highland Lux, a blend of ultra fine merino and alpaca accented with colourful speckling. Look for four new shades this season. Royal Purple (shown above).
Convertible Shrug– When the weatherman calls for cosy knits, this design will work like a charm, and provide two different looks. Wear it as a longer length vest either open or closed with a shawl pin, then turn it upside down and it becomes a shorter length shrug that fits like a cocoon. Knit in Baby Alpaca Hand Paint, the ‘oh so soft’ huggable yarn in eight exquisite hues. Lagoon (shown above).
Diamond Peplum Cardigan- Perk up your wardrobe with a flattering shade of red. This raglan design is adorned with diamond motifs and knit in one piece to the underarms with sleeves added and worked into the yoke construction. There is minimal finishing to be done. Knit in Fine Merino Superwash Aran, a plush yarn with a full range of trendy solids to choose from. Fire Red (shown above).
Legion Jacket- An A-line silhouette softens the look of this military-inspired design. Shoulder tabs, brass buttons and a playful injection of lacework as side vents are the distinctive details. Knit in an all-time favorite, Galway, a worsted weight wool featuring a whopping array of colourful choices. Emerald (shown above).
Scarf Collar Pullover- Graceful lines and classic shaping give this design a quiet understated look, wrapped up with an elegant Gatsby-style neck tie. Knit with this season’s most recent addition to the Diamond Luxury Collection, Baby Llama Naturals, a silky smooth dk weight yarn in six neutral shades, including Beige (shown above).
Sleeveless Funnel Neck- Sleek styling and a relaxed neckline on this design partner up nicely to showcase the beautiful sheen and drape of this popular yarn. For knitters who enjoy top down projects, add this one to your list. Knit in Mulberry Merino, a 50/50 blend of nature’s most decadent silk and wool fibres, offering four new shades for fall. Deep Teal (shown above).
Blouson Sleeve Pullover- A little gathering goes a long way on the sleeves of this design recreating a dreamy medieval effect. Picot edgings add a crisp finishing touch and the illusion of jewels. Knit in Fine Merino Superwash DK, a classic yarn in a paintbox-bright assortment of colours. Fuschia (shown above).
