Here’s something fun for spinners: a simple tunic designed around a complex yarn.

It can look both rustic and modern depending on how you choose to style it, working equally well with hiking boots and neon high-tops. I love the idea of making a fibre blend that encompasses the complexity of our spinners’ hearts, knitting it into something so plain, and then accessorizing it up to elevate it once more.
