New Sublime Silks

Here are two new yarns from Sublime that are perfect for summer knitting.

This easy sweater with bracelet sleeve and cowl neck will be a great addition to your summer wardrobe. The sample is currently on display in pink  Other colours include cream, taupe, mint and blue. We love Tussah Silk's two tone effect, shiny and mat, from the combination of the two fibers, silk and rayon.


Here is a blankie that is super easy and super soft in Sublime's new Baby Silk Bamboo. It's sure to become baby's favorite thing.
