Yu 裕 Bundle
Yu 裕 Bundle
Yu 裕 by Valerie Ng is featured in Neons & Neutrals: A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée!
Yu 裕 by Valerie Ng is a vest that reimagines the technique of the Herringbone stitch by adding a new twist to it: colorwork! Valerie was inspired by the idea of holding two completely different yarns: a thick one and a thin one.
For the thick yarn, she chose Cyrano by De Rerum Natura, a beautiful Aran weight yarn made of French and Portuguese Merino wool. It has a smooth round twist and is strong and durable. The contrast color is made of two strands of Kumo by La Bien Aimée in two different colors. Kumo is La Bien Aimée's fluffy Suri Alpaca base, it is soft as a cloud. Creating colorwork in Herringbone stitch creates this amazing chevron pattern, while the contrast between Cyrano and Kumo adds wonderful texture.
