Playing with Fibre Concentric Collection

I’m not the only one who’s been very busy lately! The lovely Deimne from Playing with Fibre has been working hard designed a beautiful cowl collection with Dublin Dye yarns.

Yarn: Dublin Dye Merino DK in Old Gold

The Concentric Collection features 3 cowls, knit in two different yarns, which were inspired by the gold gorgets (the most famous, Gleninsheen, can be seen here) in the National Museum of Ireland. The amazing gorgets are from 700-800 BC and made of thin sheets of moulded gold. They have strong horizontal lines of ribs, ropes and dots, which are echoed in these cowls.

Yarn: Dublin Dye Merino DK in Purple

The first two patterns, Gleninsheen (the yellow one above) and Tory Hill (purple) are knit with Dublin Dye Merino DK.  The third, Borrisnoe (in blue), uses Alpaca Lace held double. I haven’t picked a favourite yet… although maybe Gleninsheen.

The whole collection will be available for viewing (and petting, and trying on) at the Dublin Dye stand E6 at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival this weekend. They are also free downloads on Ravelry until Monday. I recommend you go add them to your library now!

A housekeeping note, the Etsy shop is closed while I’m in Edinburgh. I just can’t guarantee stock while I’m there, and it will take a few days to get the listings accurate afterwards. I’ll work to get everything relisted as quick as possible once I’m back in Dublin!
