Product Description

Following the success of their 2017 limited edition National Parks Collection, sister brands Handmaiden & Fleece Artist from Nova Scotia, Canada have released Wanderlust: Islands for 2018. Urban Yarns has chosen the yarn base "Flyss" for our summer order: a fingering weight silk and linen blend that will drape like a dream! Satisfy your wanderlust with one, several, or all 13 of these hand-dyed colourways inspired by islands around the world. The solid colours you see are also hand-dyed, to match one or more of the variegated Islands colourways.

Select a colour from the drop-menu to view an enlarged swatch (not in the Flyss yarn base), or click through the images above to view a full skein of each colourway in the Flyss yarn base. Keep in mind that any striping in the swatches is dependent on the number of stitches per row, which can vary widely between garments and accessories. They are best used to give an impression of the overall palette of a given colourway.

Also pictured above are pattern suggestions: the Desert Blossom Shawl in Flyss colours Fiji & Key West, and the Kimono Coverup shown in Flyss in two different colour combinations, Key West / Fiji / Maldives / Ishigaki and Maui / Santorini / Trinidad / Zanzibar. The Birch Bark Canoe shawl and the Sea Vines Dress are pictured in colourways that are not part of the Wanderlust: Islands collection but are both designed and knit in Handmaiden Flyss yarn.

**This is a fingering weight yarn so it can be knit at 28-30 stitches per 4"/10cm on smaller needles, but the suggested needle size results in a gauge of 26 stitches per 4"/10cm to allow for better drape of the fabric.

Maldives Sea level coral islands inspire underwater adventures with manta skates and whale sharks.

Malta Luzzus fishing boats dot the sea around a limestone island of ancient temples and fortresses.

Zanzibar The Spice Islands’ rich sights and smells. Clove, nutmeg and cinnamon against a turquoise sea.

Faroe Islands A Nordic heathland of seaside cliffs and waterfalls where grass roofs grow on blackened wooden houses.

Trinidad A visual and aural feast of butterflies and hummingbirds, Calypso and Soca.

Fiji Happiness surrounded by clear waterfalls, turquoise seas, lush tropics and coconut palms.

Ishigaki Kariyushi shirts worn to secluded beaches where rare blue corals and black pearls grow.

Maui The spirit of Aloha and friendship remembered with an orchid lei and a Haleakala sunrise.

Santorini Framed by famous sunsets, whitewashed cube-form towns cling to cliffs above the Aegean Sea.

Fogo Island Tranquility and authenticity on a rocky, lichen covered island where caribou roam and iceburgs pass.

Galapagos Earth’s origins shelter the rarest creatures on primordial volcanic islands.

Ibiza Boho beaches give way to the kaleidoscopic lights and balearic beat of night.

Key West Where fishing, diving and days of ocean excursions end with a slice of key lime pie.
