We hit upon the the final wraps for the Spring 2016 ‘Script Box while out on a run. It was November and sunrise was early enough that we could still hit the asphalt and enjoy a run before we headed into 166. It was on our way back that we finally reached consensus the perfect wraps for the box. I remember it so well because we had just passed the Peace Barn after our longest run to date (ten miles!). I was tired and had a leg cramp. Erinea was advocating hard for Phases of the Moon, going on an on about our cycles and the tides, and I just wanted to take a shower and head into work. I realized I was being ridiculous about Phases of the Moon. Why not do it? Why not take the risk? Why was I fighting so hard against it? And we both said Sparkleberry at the exact same time. Magic, I tell you!
We had planned to release the first wrap for the Spring Subscription box in the first week of January 2016 and had planned to call it the Winter 2016. Obviously, that didn’t happen because we could not decide which wraps would be part of the subscription box. We went back and forth over this for weeks with no resolution.
Erinea wanted to have Phases of the Moon (alpaca/silk blend) in the box, but I was reluctant to make it part of the subscription service. I wanted an alpaca Love Birds, but Erinea nixed that idea as we had not done any sampling and had no idea how the alpaca would perform in Love Birds.
Did we want to do an all wool or alpaca subscription box? Would it be too cost prohibitive? What about those wrappers who did not do well with wool or did not care for wool? Should we run concurrent subscription boxes? One that was all wool and another that was cotton? We do cotton so well; we both agreed that the subscription box should have at least one cotton wrap and while we were in agreement about this, we could not agree on a wrap.
So without further ado, we would like to introduce the Winter 2016 Subscription Box.
Phases of the Moon Sea Smoke (67% cotton, 26% Alpaca, 7% Silk)
Miel Indigo (88% Cotton/12% Wool)
Sparkleberry Noir (100% Cotton)

Confetti happened to be one of those designs which I completely overlooked in the early planning stages. I saw early samples and loved them and then promptly forgot about it.
Months later while doing weekly accounting, I noted that weave orders had gone in, duly noted in the books, and then once again, forgot about it. Why? I have no idea.
Confetti Seaglass and Confetti Peony made their debut at the New York Baby Show in May 2015 and it was love for the soft happy palette and classic polka-dot motif. The design is playful and cheerful and absolute perfection. The wrapping qualities are unique among Guild; it seems like a lighter version of Parterre, but not quite.
Confetti found a firm place in my heart later than month when we traveled to Puerto Rico to do an extensive photo shoot. We shot many, many wraps with our fabulous models and amazing photographers, but Confetti Noir really stole the show for me. It was perfect in every way and looked stunning on everyone. Wrapped up in Confetti Noir are all my memories of our trip to Puerto Rico: the planning and organizing that went into each photo shoot every day, everyone sitting down to dinner each night, the laughing and late night conversations in the kitchen eating leftovers, listening to all the little ones waking up early in the morning. This wrap encompasses all those memories and feelings for me.
Confetti was meant to be a spring and summer wrap: Sea Glass, Peony, Sunshine, and Peridot all evoke images of warm days, blue skies, and ocean breezes and while we loved Confetti Noir, it never quite fit into that vision—it is edgier than summer, moodier. Yet people have asked us repeatedly to weave Confetti Noir and after so many months of the same request, it is hard to come up with a good reason not to weave it. So it is with great excited that we are opening a Pavo Customer Appreciation exclusive for Confetti Noir here.
Ring Slings and sizes 2-9 will be available. The expected ship date for this exclusive will be in June 2016. We will be closing this exclusive on 16 Feb 2016.
We hope you love Confetti Noir and that it finds a special place in your stash.
