As thoughts turn to spring we’re dreaming of Orchil, a striking new color introduced for the Atelier 2020 Collection. Inspired by the Tuscan palette of Renaissance painting, Orchil highlights the beauty of the yarns and the technique in the weave.
The beauty of working with natural yarns is that each fiber holds color differently. A linen yarn will look very different than multi-felted merino wool dyed with the same color. When designing Atelier, Merida Artistic Director Sylvie Johnson and the design team spent countless hours testing yarn combinations to create the desired texture and tonal balance. The result is an interplay of color and shadow that creates the illusion of depth and dimension.
“It’s exciting to see color coming from Merida. They’re good at it.”
