We've got TJOKT
I'm on a fat knit craze, and judging by these pictures from London Fashion Week where London based designers Siblings presented their Autumn Winter 2013 womenswear collection, I'm not the only one.
Personally, I'v had the impression that really fat yarns like these are better used for interiors, who would wear like a ton of wool, no matter how cold it is? But when receiving these lovely ones I changed my mind.
Tjokt is a new brand we've just introduced in Knit with attitude's selection of goods, and let me tell you, they are just as gorgeous to wear as they look. I know this, cause I've now tried it. Tjokt Fat&Sassy Merino is the chunkiest, still the most light weight yarn, I've ever seen, Pure lush for sure.
The lovely people behind the tiny Finish company have had a lot of attention lately. Recently they were asked by Monocle Magazine to provide them with some samples for a fashion photo shoot. Given the time frame it was impossible for them to send samples from Finland to England in time, so I was asked to whip up one of their scarves. And does it whip? Yes it does! This scarf took me 2 hours to complete. Now, I'm sure it will be presented in a far more stylished manner when it appears in the magazine, but don't I look all snuggly trying it on? I will most definitely make one for my self to keep!
