From June 3rd through June 15th, Prism Yarns, one of our favorite hand-dyes, will be at String with a trunk show. Only two weeks away – I can’t wait!

Prism Yarn

If you don’t know Prism, you should! Prism has a well-deserved reputation for their beautiful, rich, saturated colors, innovative yarns (like Stuff – a combination of over 30 color-coordinated, hand-tied yarns in varying lengths) and wonderful kits that knit up into show-stopping garments and accessories. 

My personal favorite Prism yarn is Merino Mia, a sport-weight 100% Merino dyed in lush, tonal colors. I was thrilled when Prism told me that they now have Merino Mia in gradient kits -- eight skeins of a color family in each kit. And we will get some!

Laura Bryant, the genius behind Prism Yarns, is an artist who has authored six books on knitting with hand-dyed yarns. Laura personally dyes all the yarns with the assistance of her staff. Every dyeing season, she develops new colors and styles that produce amazing effects –Ikat, Shades, and Layers are just some examples.

Although Prism is a line we carry at String, we’re excited to bring something special to our Lexington Avenue store this spring. We invite you to come in June 3 - June 15 to discover for yourself why String loves Prism. 

We’ll have sample garments from Prism’s newest books (84 and 85), open stock of Tencel Tape, Petite Madison, Radiant Petite Madison, Delicato and Windward, as well as Merino Mia gradient kits. 

Prism Tencel Tee

If you’re unable to join us for the in-store show, you can still get a taste of Prism in the new Broken Arrows Tee kit. Knit in Tencel Tape, a cool, non-wool, tape “yarn” that’s perfect for the spring season, this tee is a signature Prism piece and will be offered online and in-store at 15% OFF during the first week of the show.

We’re looking forward to hosting Prism, and we’d love to see you during these two very special weeks. I suggest you get there early before I snap up all those gradient kits!
