Clayoquot: Just want the Clayoquot cardigan? It is available now!
The Clayoquot cardigan was inspired by Mile 1 of the Trans Canada Highway, the pier in Tofino, BC. The beautiful blues and greens of the Pacific ocean waters and forest beyond are mimicked in the rich, deep colours of hand dyed Sweet Fiber yarns. We used Merino Twist DK, Emily’s cardigan is in ‘Winter’, ‘Marshland’ and ‘Moss’, while Hunter’s is ‘Marshland’, ‘Paper Birch’, and ‘Something Blue’.
To photograph the Clayoquot cardigan I took Hunter and Emily to the pier. They looked out into the vast Clayoquot Sound dressed in their matching sweaters. I’ve been to the west coast of Vancouver Island many times and there is always an inspiring sight to behold, I’ve seen protesters protecting the majestic forests, kayakers and paddle boarders heading out onto the water, Orca whales and black bears, and so much more. It is such a busy and vibrant place!
Clayoquot is *gasp* steeked! If steeking is new to you, fear not, we will be releasing a step by step tutorial to take the scary out of cutting your knitting coming up next week!
