For the longest time, this gorgeous dobby had been dubbed "Silverfish," in-house; we finally decided to name it, "Thistle," because well, it looked thistle-ish to me. Now that I look at it, I wonder if we should have named it "Sage," or "Juniper," but Thistle it is.
Lucinda Thistle is the last release of our Dobby collection and it just happens to coincide with the return of warm weather to Southern California. Spring is just around the corner!
What can I tell you about Lucinda Thistle?
It has a traditional dobby hand feel and is gorgeously silvery with our signature spearmint, fawn, and granite mercerized yarn. It is light, airy, and thin. In fact, if you hold it up to the light, you can almost see through it. Now, I know I probably lost some of you when I started discussing the thinness of this wrap, but just give me a minute. I loved, loved thin wraps when my boys were babies. Loved them and then as they grew, I thought I needed thicker wraps to accommodate their growth and I found myself shifting towards those wraps, but then a dear friend of mine, who also happens to share my obsession with pens, told me in passing that really there is no such thing as a wrap that was "toddler-worthy,"; it came down to wrapping technique. And you know, she was right. I found myself gravitating to those thinner wraps I had come to love as my boys moved through toddlerhood and into pre-school. I still love my thicker wraps for sure, but there is something so satisfying about getting a nice, tight chest pass with a thin, moldable wrap that makes me smile. Don't let the airiness of Lucinda Thistle scare you off; as with Galax and Phlox, there is a surprising amount of cush. It doesn't strain or dig into the shoulders. That's the magic of Pavo.
If you are looking for a beautiful, cool wrap to wear in warmer weather or if you are just feeling nostalgic for our dobbies, give Lucinda Thistle a whirl. She will not disappoint.
