We are starting to receive the Prism Trunk Show peices and yarns. Laura Bryant, owner of Prism Yarns, has pulled together a fabulous selection of gorgeous new garments and supporting fibers, and I truly cannot wait to share them with you! Heck, I can't wait to get my hands on them myself!
You remember last year's trunk show, I'm sure, so when you think of Prism, it's probably Wild Stuff and Plume that come to mind. Prism does a terrific job with those splashy yarns, but they're really so much more. It's Laura's command of color that sets Prism apart from other hand-dye companies. Her gradient kits have rich and saturated colors throughout, moving from one shade to the next with incredible subtlety. Her semisolid colors are complex, and her variegated fibers are colorful without being garish.
Prism is the home of the most luxurious fibers the industry has to offer. Heavy on merino, cashmere, and silk, Prism yarns feel as good as they look. I am a huge fan of Merino Mia, a tightly twisted sport/dk weight yarn, and Saki, a hardworking sock yarn that combines luxury and durability. I have recently fallen in love with Petite Madison, a delicious fingering weight blend of merino, cashmere, and silk, and her dazzling sister, Radiant Petite Madison which is the same fiber with a subtle twinkle running through. My daughter, Elizabeth, just finished a lace-trimmed tank in the Radiant Petite, and it is gorgeous!
We'll have samples in these and other beautiful fibers for you to see this Friday - it will be a fun and glitzy event, so feel free to wear something a little sparkly! I look forward to seeing you at the Prism Trunk Show, in the shop, and around the table. You are always welcome here.
