Michaels, North America’s leading arts and crafts store, is the exclusive retailer for Isaac Mizrahi CRAFT, the designer’s new yarn collection debuting just in time for fall.
From super chunky to shimmery chic metallic, the line includes four New York-inspired, trend-driven collections:
- Lexington – super bulky in six bright prints for quick accessory projects and arm knitting
- Sutton – deep, rich color shades gently from one tone to the next for creating cowls, scarves and accessories
- Carnegie Hill – bulky with loops and threads of metallic for fall and winter accessories and shawls
- Carlyle – extremely lightweight neutrals with lofty metallic sheen for sweater and scarf projects
“Yarn, knitting, and crafts have always been a huge part of my life. To create this line I took my inspiration from the icons of New York, my home town which also happens to be the epicenter of American style and fashion,” said Mizrahi, Creative Director for the brand. “My new yarn collection is filled with the colors and textures of fall 2014, and offers a completely fresh take on handcrafted design.”
Isaac Mizrahi CRAFT, created by Premier Yarns, includes 4 different yarns in 24 fall and holiday colors.
“More and more young people are discovering knitting and yarn projects to create unique fashion and home looks,” said Michaels Executive Vice President – Merchandising Philo Pappas. “Mizrahi’s beautiful new designer yarns appeal to those who want a nontraditional spin on their projects.”
Project ideas and instructions are available on Michaels.com.
