Happy Summer Solstice! Today, we rejoice in the sun and light on the longest day of the year. To celebrate, we have created a new colorway: Jubilant.

~~~

Jubilant is available on three yarn bases:

Floating is our softest yarn, made of 70% Alpaca ~ 20% Silk ~ 10% Cashmere, you can use it to create a single skein scarf or shawl. Or combine it with another yarn, to create an even larger piece, such as Swoop! (437 yards / 100g) 

Frond is a radiant beam of halo and glow, due to its content of 72% kid mohair and 28% silk. (Fingering weight / 459 yards / 50 g)

Rumor is a yarn that we bring out for special occasions like today! Rumor is constructed from a single ply and has an irresistible shine due to its fiber content of 70% superwash Merino and 30% silk. (Fingering weight / 438 yards / 100g)

What to knit? How about Luminos?

When sitting down this year to think of what gives us great joy and happiness at this time of year - peaches came instantly to mind. 

I wait all year long for peach season. It is one of my favorite fruits. I have searched high and low for the best peach. A couple years back, I found them - grown by Masumoto in the Central Valley. This lovely organic farm is family owned and has an incredible history, recorded and told through a series of books by David Mas Masumoto. The farm's legacy continues with his daughter, Nikiko.

During this time of year, I splurge on peaches. Bringing them into the studio for all of us to enjoy. I admire their soft slight fur, the golden skin with dappled specks of rose,  and their sweet mango like flavor.

So in honor of peaches, we have created Jubilant - which is the feeling or expression of great happiness. Rose via speckles melds into peachy gold, which flows into a minty green, reminiscent of the peach tree's leaves, and a hint of light blue, just a peek of the Summer sky above.

I hope on this long, light-filled summer day, you are either eating a peach or enjoying something that brings and gives you joy - even the smallest moment matters. 

I cannot wait to cast-on with this colorway! I hope you will join me.

Warmly,
Kristine and Team Verb
