The Covet Vest came about as a result of my need to create cozy apparel. I am constantly in search of comfortable, versatile garments. With this piece I imagined a wool blanket-like shawl. What could be cozier? With vibrant red 100% wool fabric I used a Shibori technique to emphasize the versatility of the garment. The zebra-like pattern that appears after being Indigo dyed creates charcoal lines that either line up or make agreeable degrees of angles depending
on the way you wear it.
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to me at
