Blue Sky Fibers
 

Weather forecast this week... blue skies, with a chance of fiber! Exclusive to Jimmy Beans customers, Blue Sky Fibers is offering a free pattern download code, with the purchase of the Endless Wrap kit, the Princeton Capelet kit, or the Esko Kimono kit! If you've been thinking that your needles might need some Blue Sky Fibers love, now is the time to get your fix!

Knit in Woolstok, the Endless Wrap utilizes knits, purls, and yarn overs to create a lofty, textured wrap that is perfect for a beginning knitter looking to expand their skills! The Princeton Capelet features Eco Cashmere, one of Blue Sky's newest lines. This yarn is super soft, 100% Italian Cashmere... what's not to love? The Esko Kimono was a customer favorite, when we featured it in our retail shop back in July! The combination of buttery soft Alpaca Silk and stunning striping and drape give this kimono a sophisticated look, that can either be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion!

Tell Your Mama... We've Got Llamas!

Joining the JBW family...a herd of llamas! Okay, not an actual herd of llamas. A herd of llama products! Jimmy (a.k.a. Laura) and Shannon took a trip to Las Vegas Market at the end of last month, and fell in L-O-V-E with these adorable accessories and decor pieces! We happen to think that these are the bee's knees... the llama's pajamas?! (Hehe!)

Fun fact: a baby llama is called a cria, Spanish for "baby". You mamas are sure to love these crias as much as we do!

Esko Kimono Blue Sky Project Log
 

Blue Sky's Esko Kimono

Modeled by our Bean, Alex, the Esko Kimono was one of our favorite pieces from the 2018 Blue Sky Fibers Trunk Show! It was also a customer favorite, while it was displayed in our retail shop. The combination of alpaca and silk creates a drapey quality (that we love!), and the stunning stripes provided just the right amount of detail! Lightweight and comfortable, this will be a favorite for years to come!
