Audio Slideshow Norah Gaughan vol.3, art house
Part 2 of Margery and Norah's discussion of
norah gaughan, volume 3

Today we will focus on the second chapter of norah gaughan volume 3 - ART HOUSE, featuring eight designs inspired by modern art, sculpture in particular. We photographed amid a wonderful private art collection. The forms and colors in the surrounding works of art and furnishings seemed to be reflected in Norah's designs.

For her medium, Norah chose a splendid palette of fine fibers that allowed her to continue to invent and further refine her unique stitch vocabulary. Inca Gold™, Palace®™, Pure® Merino DK, Pure® Merino Heather and Pure® Merino Nuance are our affordable luxury basics included in the volume.

Berroco Inca® GoldBerroco Inca® Gold is luxurious blend of merino wool and silk at an honest price. The multi-plied and refined twist creates a classic yarn of quality that will withstand the test of time. It's available in 14 colors.

Palace®Palace® is a luxurious, 50/50 blend of merino wool and silk that speaks softly of the elite pleasures of knitting the finest fibers. Available in 12 colors.

Pure Merino DKPure Merino DK is a new member of our Pure® Merino family of yarns with 19 of our most popular colors.You might also enjoy our companion palettes in Pure® Merino, Pure®Merino Heather and Pure®Merino Nuance.
