The Romeo and Juliet collection was started in 2013, a teaser and the first pics were posted on 15 September. While the colourway ‘Juliet’ had already been released before, this collection introduced a variation of purples (Rosaline, Verona, Valentine, Escalus, Paris, Capulet) and blues (Romeo, Benvolio, Montague, Abram, Mercutio). The Romeo colourway has been used on a number of test runs/prototypes as well.
The 2016 addition to the Romeo and Juliet collection features the ‘Star-crossed lovers fade’, a warp gradation from Juliet purple to Romeo blue, combined with rich magenta, bright turquoise, black, white, ecru and, for the first time, a gradation weft especially made to harmonise with the warp. This is different from the grad weft that has been done before on for instance Sekai Jol and Rive Jig of Joy where the warp grad was repeated on the weft.
Introduced in this collection, the Romeo and Juliet collection, we haven’t seen much of Loveknot yet. The pattern seems to be a bit ‘fuzzy’ and hasn’t been very popular to date.
It is my love!
It’s a quote from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Act 2 scene 2:
“It is my lady. Oh, it is my love.
Oh, that she knew she were!”
