Description
Learn how to show off the particular qualities of silk, cashmere, linen, cotton, hemp, and other natural yarns with this library of tips, techniques, and patterns. The book features 25 patterns for luxurious sweaters and fashion accents—including a coat, shawl, jacket, cardigan, stole, pullover, and vest—that use non-wool fibers to their best advantage. Candace Eisner Strick, an internationally known knitwear designer and teacher, also discusses the origins of each fiber, along with design suggestions, cleaning and care tips, and gorgeous stitch patterns.

"Working on the premise that a luxury fiber needs a project that enhances its special qualities, Eisner Strick designs 25 garments explicitly for their source skeins. Silk's natural sheen is enhanced by a two-toned star-stitch twinset, an azure-toned shell peeking through a sky-blue lace jacket.... Ribbed cables lend stretch to a llama blend. Angora's halo fluffs up a smocked vest and fingerless gloves. Linen knits up into a sturdy market bag as bright as a battalion of international flags. Qiviut, cotton, hemp ... pick your poison."—Yarn Market News
