Hello, Amirisu.

It’s been a busy month for new and interesting magazines, and another new title has arrived at our door. Let’s take a peek at Amirisu!

Amirisu is a bilingual knitting magazine from Japan, each issue filled with patterns, articles, and interviews. Amirisu provides a glimpse into the textile and knitting culture of Japan, though fiber artists and knitwear designers from around the world are featured.

This issue’s theme is natural dyes, and it grew from a question: what does it mean to be a natural dyer in the 21st century? Japanese indigo dyers at BUAISOU help to answer this question, as does California-based natural dyer Kristine Vejar.

Of course, there are beautiful knitting patterns, too; warm-weather knits are the focus this issue, from lightweight linen tops to openwork shawls.

The sequence-knit shawl above was made with Geilsk Cotton/Wool, a balanced fingering weight blend ideal for summer knitting. Find Cotton/Wool in the fingering weight section here at the shop, and find Amirisu on the teacart as you walk in!
