We are so excited to share with you our newest yarn arrival Luxe DK. A luxurious blend of alpaca, silk and cashmere in a DK weight knitting yarn, Luxe DK is exquisitely hand-dyed in Germany by Caitrin from WalkCollection.
Caitrin has an unbelievable eye for colour, and she translates this into every skein of yarn she dyes. We have Luxe DK in 21 colours including marled, speckled and softly variegated colourways.
This is one of those yarns that you'll want to use in a special knitting project, here are just a few suggestions for knitting patterns you might like to cast on.
Lemmy K. by Isabell Kraemer knit in Luxe DK, in Metal Dust.
Isabell Kraemer's design Lemmy K. is an utterly gorgeous shawl. The combination of the rustic cable and lace border with plain stocking and rib stitch give this shawl it´s laid-back look, especially in Metal Dust on Luxe DK, which Isabell used.
Lanes is a beautiful classic cardigan by Joji Locatelli. It was originally published in issue one of Laine Magazine but is now available as a single pattern on Ravelry. Lanes is one of those cardigans that will fast become an all-time favourite in your wardrobe; it's the little details like the fake shoulder seams and the collar that can be worn folded or unfolded. The sample was knit with Luxe DK in the colourway Arctic Wolf.
Jodi by Joji Locatelli knit in Luxe DK in Arctic Fox, Metal Dust and Volcanic Sand.
Joji Locatelli´s gorgeous Jodi shawl is also worked in Luxe DK, making it a quick project with a stunning result. Three skeins of yarn are used in this crescent-shaped shawl.
We love the bold, bright colours that MrsSchMINI chose to knit her shawl in, what three colours will you choose?
