We are excited to introduce our 2020 Spring Collection of wool fabrics designed and milled exclusively for the studio. Elements of our beautiful planet inspired the colours and textures for this collection. “Purple Mountain” depicts the majestic vistas in the west. It is a haunting combination of dusky violet and red grape. “Billy Jean” is a small plaid in two tones of denim blue that was inspired by our pristine Great Lakes and Coastal waters. “Pitch Pine” (Green) and “Sandbanks” (Brown/Sand) are reversible! They have a light and a dark side. The hooked sample shows the two sides hooked as light and dark, striped by alternating the two values or if you like to hook in all directions, it creates a wonderful varigated effect. “Bandlands” represents regions with clay infused earth such as our local Cheltenham badlands and the red soil of PEI. “Amber” simply glows! This rich golden yellow contains flecks of salmon which mimics the nuances of amber. Neutrals are a staple in every stash and “Birthday Cake” will be your new “go to” white. It is a lovely winter white, with just a hint of flecks in multiple colours. Very subtle. These 100% wool fabrics are 13-14 oz and wash, dry and take dye beautifully. Below you will find our “How Does it Hook” series of photos for each of the wool fabrics which gives you a closer look at the textures and colour.
We are also trying out a lovely new solid black from our mill. The wool is incredibly luxurious and feels like cashmere. Look for Studio Black…stock is limited.
This collection is now available on the website. In other news, we have taken advantage of the Covid closure and decided to push forward our plans for renovations in the studio. It was something we intended to do at a later date but now it is necessary in order to be able to re open and comply with distancing and safety measures. For now the studio remains closed but curbside pick up is available and shipping is free for online, email and phone in orders. Watch for our grand re-opening newsletter soon. Wishing you continued good health. Click on this link to shop the collection https://martinalesar.com/product-category/wool-fibers/martina-lesar-wool/
