Echoes of Heather and StoneEchoes of Heather and Stone is a timeless collection of 8 garments and accessory handknits inspired by Ireland's ancient past. Ireland has a rich history and geography that has inspired artists and crafters for generations. As an introduction to the collection, each designer describes their thought process and design inspiration in their own words.
Carol explains â€œ For this book, I invited seven talented designers to draw inspiration from this deep well of living heritage. I didnâ€™t want to produce just another book of Aran sweaters. I wanted designs inspired by Ireland on a deeper level, combined with each designerâ€™s personality and aesthetic to become something beautifully unique. â€
Launch PartyCarol will be presenting the full Trunk Show of patterns from the book and you will have the chance to get your copy signed afterwards too. You will be able to try on the garments and also to see the intricateÂ details on Newgrange, Talamed, Trittico andÂ Ahenny as well as help to create your own coordinating colour choices for Epona, Knowth and Aine. If that wasn't enough we will also have a special launch discount of 10% off the RRP of Echoes of Heather and StoneÂ for the event, plus a special offer on the exclusive "Woollinn" shade of Nua yarn.Â Â Each print edition of the book comes with a complimentary digital copy. Please note that there is a booking fee of 5 euro for the event but this will translate as a 5 euro credit against any purchases made on the day.Â Head on over to our booking page here to nab your place for this Saturday.
