‘Tranquil’ by Sarah Hazell

27th April 2017
Studio Linen TRANQUIL model

British knit and crochet designer Sarah Hazell has designed this elegant summer shawl in a simple shell stitch using 3 colours of studio linen exclusively for erika knight.

Studio Linen is made from recycled linen fibres, which are selected, undone and re-spun with premium natural linen to create a beautiful and unique recycled yarn. With a dry hand feel, cool drape and subtle sheen, a yarn that just gets better with wear and age.

Available from your LYS and online from the erika knight Raverly store

Inspired by the ancient Japanese resist dyeing technique of ‘Shibori’ four new colours for 2017 mimic the subtle hues of indigo dye.
