This was also our first chance to create a collection while having access to the full BT yarn palette from day one. Our initial run...

The new issue features work from 14 diverse talents from our industry – all of whom have been an honor to collaborate with. As with our first volume, we shot for a balance of project types and skill levels in hopes of curating...
