fair isle season

If you spend any time walking around AGY you will quickly see that colorwork is a passion.  While we love our indie hand-dyes there is something special about the traditional wools that call out for fair isle techniques.  And this is the time of year to wear these works of art.  This gorgeous article from Selvedge magazine (an absolute must read magazine for fiber lovers) gives a fantastic history of fair isle.  Click HERE for the full article on the Selvedge blog and enjoy with a cup of coffee and your favorite colorwork project.
