Podcast 259: Fantastic Felici

Knit Picks Podcast, Episode 259: Fantastic Felici - Summer 2017 Value Pack

You might think you know our stupendous, self-striping sock yarn, Felici, with it’s sensously soft 75% Merino Wool, 25% Nylon blend and ever-changing selection of brilliant colors, in classic fingering or new worsted weights. Whether you’re a devoted follower or a burgeoning novitiate, you might be surprised at what you learn with this glimpse behind the scenes for one of our favorite yarns to develop.

To start, I chat about Felici color development with two keystones to the process, Art Director Heidi and Merchandise Buyer Alexis. While everyone at Knit Picks plays some part, these two ladies are essential to every Felici release.

To followup, Catalog Director Hannah and Outreach Director Stacey talk through their favorite possibilities for Felici, with plenty of pattern suggestions. Two of our most experienced knitters, they prove that there’s more to Felici than socks.
