NIGHT BLOOMS is a wonderfully wooly hat combining Magpie Fibers Nest Worsted and Biches et Bûches Le Gros Silk & Mohair in a simple but dramatic colourwork motif. The different textures of the yarns make for an unexpected pairing and the fabric created is reminiscent of the flocked velvet wallpapers of yesteryear.
