Wool People 6
Wool People 6 is a perfect collection for late fall that focuses on cozy, intuitive-to-work sweaters. This time around, I asked the designers to think especially about the knitting process as they were generating their ideas. I was delighted to see so many submissions that were worked circularly, seamlessly, or both – and the majority of the sweaters in the final collection fall into one of these categories. (For you finishing fiends, we have a couple "assembly required" pieces as well!)
You'll see a few familiar faces on the designer roster as well as some wonderful new-to-us names, too.
To photograph the collection, the BT creative team and I traveled to the beautiful Shawangunk mountains for a weekend at Losee Cottage in Cragsmoor, New York. With the increased altitude, the colors of the leaves on the timeworn oaks and maples were much further along in their metamorphosis in mid-September than our low-lying city trees were.
The collection look book is now on view below (or page through it here and download a free copy of the hi-resolution PDF to take with you on your device). Be sure to check out our new "Shoot Notes" feature at the end of the book: a photo collage of behind-the-scenes photos that will give you a peek at what shoot days look like "behind the curtain".
In the coming weeks we'll have some exciting collection-related content coming your way. On the blog, I'll be hosting a series of conversations with selected designers from the collection for a more in-depth look at their new work. We'll also be featuring new photos and notes from the collection on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds, too.
There's always so much packed into a collection, we continue to seek ways in which we can tastefully share as many facets with you as possible.
As always, we hope you enjoy!
All my best,
Each pattern in the collection is available for instant download here, or on Ravelry.com. Brooklyn Tweed yarns used in the collection are available for purchase online, or at one of our 16 flagship retail locations.
