WHAT’S THE FUTURE FOR BROOKLYN TWEED? ”We’re focusing our efforts on developing more unique, breed-specific yarns that are made in America. I’m really excited to be crafting some new yarns to diversify the types of projects and fabrics we can create, as well as the expanded list of US manufacturers and ranchers we will be able to support.”
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW BOOK LAUNCH… ”All of our patterns are offered individually and directly to knitters through our website as downloadable PDFs but one of the most common requests has been for printed materials, particularly knitting books. We’ve been chewing on this idea for several years, trying to find a way to present our work in print, selling entire design collections which often include the work of several different designers, without compromising our designer-friendly ethos. Our new Capsule series is the result of that search.
Capsule gives a single designer the opportunity to design a small wardrobe of knits that will be available as a printed knitting book (as well as via individual pattern downloads, like the rest of our pattern archive). We launched this new series in November 2015, leading with a collection by the very talented Olga Buraya-Kefelian.
I’m a print-book-lover and I’ve selfishly longed for the day when we take our work onto paper. This first Capsule book has been a real joy to create. I’m really pleased with how it has all turned out and am anxious to work on our next one!”
