Stripes, brioche and beads are all design elements that anchor Kedging’s modern sensibilities. Using two different types of yarn, a smooth hand dyed yarn with a brushed alpaca silk, accentuates the different design elements. Beads act as miniature anchors to give weight and structure to the edging.
