“ Sardinia is out of time and history.”– DH Lawrence
Sardinia in July is a hymn to Summer, the perfect beginning to our Italian journey. Porto Cervo, our first stop, is the sparkling heart of Costa Smeralda, home to glamorous soireés among starred restaurants, designer boutiques, and exclusive art galleries. A leisurely stroll along the waterfront leaves us feeling energised and invigorated, soaking in the sun while admiring some of the most majestic yachts in the world…
The Spiaggia Rosa, while now a forbidden destination, is every bit as breathtaking as you’d imagine it to be– pink sands sparkling in the sun, waves breaking gently at the shore. Evening brings a concert on the coast– the music wafting through the air brings new life to this historical gem.
– Sardinia is one of the only five “Blue Zones” in the world– areas where inhabitants often reach the advanced age of 100 years.
– 25% of the island is environmentally preserved.
– Out of the 2,400 species of plants, 322 are unique to the island.
Our Sardinia set features 3 shades of 50wt thread in 2410, 2425, & 2530. They coordinate perfectly with the Azalea, Baby Pink, & Pink Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics shown above. For a bit of creative inspiration, make sure to grab the Italian Color Builders EPP Pattern (shown above) by Aurifil’s own Kate Brennan and the Sardinia Love block (shown below) by Aurifil Designer Sarah Ashford via the links below.
