What we're knitting our sample in:

LAMANA Como is a yarn we fell in love with at our trade show in May. It is part of the LAMANA SUPERLIGHT collection, developed for extraordinary lightweight knits. Innovative manufacturing processes give the superlight yarns a unique lightness, and knitted garments weigh significantly less than usual. 

Find our curated color combinations here. (Fun fact: we scrolled through all the red carpet photos from this year's Met Gala for color inspo 😊)

Other possibilities we're excited about:

Berroco Lanas Light, combined with Schoppel Edition 3 for the contrast colors--we swatched using just one ball of the Edition 3, rather than using two different solid colors.

Saona 50/50 Wool/cotton blend in subtle, neutral shades, plus Urth Yarns' Spiral Grain, a mellow color shifting Merino wool.
