Tigerwheet

beauty shotby

Mellow

A quick and simple summer top which could easily be thrown on with jeans or over a dress was what I needed in my wardrobe. This will be your go-to summer knit.

Knit in the round from bottom up this seamless top is a quick garment. Chest and Back are the same with its simple neckline and 3-needle bind off at the shoulders.

Yosemite is a bulky organic cotton which makes it easy to wash and wear. The colorway features is called Pride. Such an important colorway for us, it's joyful, meaningful and you can wear it with PRIDE. Wash and wear your favorite top over and over!

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

designernameAfter a life changing wool allergy, Samantha had to change her life from wool to plant based yarns. As a dyer the process was new, the yarn was different and the patterns were limited. She developed her yarn line, Trailhead Yarn, full of fun colours. Next her venture was in developing perfect patterns for these unique hand dyed yarns.

Ginger( the dog) keeps her company as she knits away in beautiful Ontario, Canada.
