To celebrate our lovely new colours throughout the Zealana Collection we have made two fantastic new pattern books with 16 gorgeous designs altogether. Take a browse on our website under “Yarns” here or follow us on Instagram and Facebook for inspiration and pics! We have collaborated with the ever talented team at Vogue Knitting, working with 12 fabulous designers including Yoko Hatta, Josh Bennett and Mari Lynn Patrick.
Our new Heron book includes eight gorgeous patterns that perfectly show off the robust texture of our artisan heathered yarn. With 80% Fine New Zealand Merino and 20% sumptuously soft Brushtail Possum fibre, these garments will be ever so comfortable and cosy!
Our second book is a mixture of patterns using Fingering weight in two of our most popular blends – Kauri and Rimu. Both from our Performa series of yarns, Kauri is made using 60% Fine New Zealand Merino, 10% Silk and 30% Brushtail Possum whereas Rimu has 60% Fine New Zealand Merino and 40% Brushtail Possum. The addition of silk in Kauri creates a lustre in the finished fabric, and Rimu has slightly more of a fibre burst for the higher percentage of Possum. The benefit of these two fingering yarns is they are interchangeable, so you can mix and match any of the colours to work for all eight patterns in the new book!
