Emilia & Philomène – Joséphine
You are looking for a fine merino yarn, non-superwash, with deep colours that are also easy to wear? The beautiful Joséphine by Emilia & Philomène might well be the one!
Indeed, Amélie, the artist and dyer behind Emilia & Philomène, offers a range of basic colours, easy to blend in your wardrobe, but with deep shades. For example, she uses touches of brown or orange to enhance a greyish blue or a powder pink. This way, she has created unique colours, that feel like they come right from a master’s painting.
Once put on this merino yarn, with its pronounced texture, the colours of Amélie’s palette increase the contrast between the slightly raw aspect of the fiber and its softness under your fingers. Actually, this non-treated yarn will give your knitted projects a certain body, belied by its pleasant feel on the skin.
