As each fiber takes to the dye differently, our monochromatic pieces show the depth and nuance of each color, the works transforming further in the shifting light of the environment.

A Textural Palette

Each year, we craft six new colors for our library, each addition forming the inspirational base for our annual Atelier collection. To experience the variety, texture, and nuance of these colors, textures, and combinations, we encourage you to explore our yarn card library, which contains each of our signature colors.

Transforming under light and shadow, the physicality of these fibers is most fully experienced with touch, breath, and sight. Though each shifting hue is captured as closely as possible in our digital library below, we encourage you to explore the totality of the library in person.

  • Mouliné Wool

    This lively yarn twists felted wool with Egyptian cotton. When the yarn is dyed the thin, cotton strand remains white, giving the piece an energy of its own as it spirals and marbles the surface.
