The yarnstory:
Gaye “GG” Glasspie remembers watching Terra Mitchell years ago on Periscope - wow, throwback! - back when Terra only had one dye pot in her backyard. She knew that Terra was going to be a force to reckon with even back then.  


Terra has always been interested in creating colorways that she wasn’t seeing all over the place which makes her and GG the perfect pairing. Taking inspiration from the world around her in Louisiana, Terra has created gorgeous orange and orange-dotted colorways that anyone can work with and wear.

This is THE yarn in our Knit Stars Flagship Store that people can’t stop touching! The super-luxe base of 50% Superwash Merino and 50% silk gives your finished project unbeatable hand-feel, drape, softness and vibrancy.

Sheep Camp Sweater by Jennifer Berg

Shelley fell madly, deeply in love with this design when she spotted it in the Instagram feed of Jennifer Berg, aka @nativeknitter who will be featured in the upcoming Knit Stars Masterclass Season 6. Jennifer lives and designs on a Navajo reservation near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her work is inspired by the beautiful creations of her people, and her color palettes reflect the richness of her culture.

Jennifer designed the Sheep Camp sweater to capture the feeling of a more simple life - the life of her grandmother, who was a shepherdess. The light sweater features a yoke with an arrow design that reminds the wearer to keep breathing, in and out, in and out.

Terra dyed up the PERFECT pale aqua “Frenchmen” for the main color, and two choices for the contrast color: deep blue "Boyfriend Jeans" as seen in Shelley's model, and "Nutshell," a beautiful brown.
