Introducing the Modern Bloomsbury Collection by The Yarn Collective

Published on June 5, 2020 By Sophie Brown 2 min read

We're so excited to introduce The Yarn Collective's brand new collection - Modern Bloomsbury, a set of three exclusive knitting designs, celebrating the inspirational Bloomsbury Group.

Discover The Yarn Collective Patterns

Made using The Yarn Collective's artisan, hand-dyed yarns; these beautiful knitted garments are inspired by the iconic Bloomsbury Set – a group of intellectual women writers and philosophers who formed a group in the 1900s.

The beautiful gardens of the Bloomsbury Group’s country meeting place are echoed in the delicate borders of this pretty sweater. With its lovely drape, The Yarn Collective’s Fleurville is the perfect choice for this feminine perennial beauty." – Stella Ackroyd

Designers Cheryl Eaton and Stella Ackroyd have taken snippets of inspiration from the women's stomping ground to create gorgeous garments that are guaranteed to stand the test of time.

This collection is particularly close to home for us at LoveCrafts, as the Bloomsbury group were based just around the corner from the LoveCrafts London office!

Stella Ackroyd's stunning Charleston sweater

We can't wait to knit up Stella Ackroyd's stunning Charleston sweater. Stella was inspired by the beautiful gardens of the Bloomsbury Group’s country meeting place, and this comes through in the delicate borders of this pretty sweater. Knitted in the round with picked-up, top-down sleeves, the project is seamless and ready-to-go after the final neckband cast-off.

Throw it on as a t-shirt on summer days spent in the garden, or later it up in chillier weather with a long-sleeved top underneath for a more urban look. With its lovely drape, The Yarn Collective’s Fleurville is the perfect choice for this feminine perennial beauty.

Fleurette Shawl by Stella Ackroyd

Next up in this to-die-for collection is the dreamy Fleurette Shawl – a welcome addition to any wardrobe!

Floral abundance reigns in this lovely summer shawl. Worked from just two skeins of scrumptious Rivoli by The Yarn Collective, this shawl is large and drapey with a lovely alpaca haze - just right for Summer decadence and confident feminine chic!"

Georgette Shawl by Cheryl Eaton

Last but most definitely not least is the simply gorgeous Georgette Shawl by Cheryl Eaton. Cheryl's inspiration for the beautiful Georgette Shawl comes from a painted door at the Bloomsbury group's retreat outside London. The door was painted by Vanessa Bell, in stripes and floral motifs that are beautifully reflected in the colours and textures of this fabulous shawl.
