We were thrilled to welcome knitwear designer, Tatsiana of ViTalina Craft and her family to our mill recently whilst she was holidaying in the south west of England. Our brand manager, Kamila and admin assistant, Ginny (pictured below) had a great planning meeting with Tatsiana, discussing a range of exciting projects coming soon and there was lots of wool-related news to catch up on. Tatsiana was provided with a full tour of our production areas by our colleague and The Natural Fibre Company account executive, Beki who showed her how our wonderful yarns are made in the mill.
We have already collaborated on a number of gorgeous design projects with Tatsiana including creating project kits with her pattern designs: Waterfall Bolero Light, a charming knitted garment for little and older girls made with our Lyonesse 4-ply yarn; as well as the Adult Saunter Poncho, Cable Whisper Vest and the Chainring Hat for Adult or Child, each design using our popular Blacker Swan DK yarn range.
We have expanded our adult and child wear range as a result of working closely with Tatsiana over the past year or so and we are delighted that more designs are underway and we’ll be sharing updates on new patterns and project kit launches in the near future for you to enjoy. In the meantime, Tatsiana has created a blog article about her visit and you can read it in full here.
