It's that time of year again! Our Fall/Winter 2019 collection has dropped in stores and online even though the temperature hasn't yet. It isn't quite sweater weather, but these new arrivals are too beautiful to keep to ourselves. Your favorite Krimson Klover styles are back again in new bold colors and patterns. The Krimson Klover team has also created some new styles you are sure to fall in love with! Here's a brief introduction to our Fall New Arrivals:
Transition from cold summer breezes into crisp autumn days with a collection of sweaters, dresses, and skirts. Looks are enriched with distinctive patterns, soft waffle-knits and alluring color stories. This group features a few of our favorite lightweight pieces.
Envelop yourself in our luxurious collection of cozy knits inspired by relaxing next to a crackling fire. Stay comfortable and warm in stylish pieces, celebrating our finest yarns and jacquards.
The inspiration for this collection stemmed from the team’s travels and adventures. Mid and base layers with seamless technology for comfort, contour, and performance without sacrificing style. Perfect on and off the slopes, this innovative group offers the ideal balance of stretch and soft compression to be flattering in all the right places.
Krimson Klover has expanded the successful vintage inspired base layer collection. Each unique piece features original artwork from a Colorado artist, with a modern twist on retro ski fashion. The vibrant designs featured on this year's collection of base layers were inspired by Nordic folklore, Peru and our very own Rocky Mountains!
Fun vintage inspired designs on hats, gaiters, and bags add a touch of whimsy to every outfit.
Our Mountain Elegance collection combines buttery-soft viscose stretch yarn with distinctive patterns and knit techniques, to give you style and natural performance without wool. This group's favorite styles feature classic styles for the slopes or apres.
Born in the mountains of Colorado, ski culture runs deep in our veins. Our colorful and innovative sweater designs in luxurious merino blends are as perfect on the slopes as they are for your apres-ski merriments.
This collection is a contemporary take on traditional, beloved knits. We combined classic silhouettes and timeless desings with bold colors and extra-fine merino yarns.
Krimson Klover headed a few miles southeast from Boulder to Denver at the end of January to the Snow Show. It was a busy, yet fun couple of days for our team showing off the next fall collection to our retailers and other businesses in the outdoor and ski industries. The Snow Show was the first trade show of 2019 that Krimson Klover attended. Outdoor Retailer is one of the leading business-to-business outdoor sports show where industry brands, retailers, reps, suppliers and leaders gather.
(Above) Snow Show was held at Colorado Convention Center in the heart of downtown Denver.
At Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, Krimson Klover did everything from writing new orders to meeting new accounts and making new connections. OR is where the new happens. And with its conferences, training sessions, leadership seminars and educational opportunities, the show is a great event for Krimson Klover each year!
(Above) Krimson Klover picked out some of next fall's favorites to dress the mannequins.
A lot of planning went into this 3 day show, from which sweaters to put on the display mannequins for a great first impression, down to when the Krimson Klover Team took their lunch break! It was an “all hands on deck” event. Even one of our office dogs was put to work, greeting our guests and grabbing passerby’s attention.
(Above) Fall 19 collection features new original artworks as well as this past season's favorites on base layers, vests, and accessories.
One of the highlights of any show is hearing the retailers’ first reactions to the new collection. We share in their excitement for bold patterns, textures and colors that are uniquely Krimson Klover. Distinctive patterns, vintage inspired original artwork, and seamless knits make this new collection stand out and our new performance fabrics ensure that the pieces stand up to your active lifestyle.
At the end of the show, we were all a bit tired from all the action, especially our little greeter, Koa.
Look for Krimson Klover Fall 19 to hit the stores and the website in August. In the meantime, let's think Spring - coming very soon!

There are so many different fibers these days, it’s hard to keep them straight. Here is a quick checklist of some of our favorite fibers.
Fibers From Animals:
Merino Wool – Prized for their wool, Merino Sheep deliver a soft, fine fiber that is naturally antibacterial, repels water and stays warm and toasty even when wet.
Cashmere – Cashmere fibers come from the downy winter undercoat of Cashmere Goats. Cashmere wool is finer, stronger and lighter and three times more insulating than sheep’s wool. Often garnishing a premium price even over Ultrafine Merino Wool.
Mohair – A fine and delicate fiber from the Angora goat. Angora is notable for its high luster and sheen, mohair is warm in winter yet moisture-wicking and cool in the summer. Mohair is naturally elastic, flame and crease-resistant. Mohair is often blended with other fibers (like nylon) to increase its durability.
Angora – Not to be mistaken for Mohair, which comes from the Angora Goat (see above). Angora refers to the downy coat of the Angora Rabbit. Angora Rabbit fur fibers are much warmer and lighter than wool due to the hollow core of the angora fiber. There are several animal cruelty concerns in the “plucking” of fur from Angora rabbits. “Plucking” might sound bad, but plucking in this sense refers to the brushing out of the rabbit’s undercoat so you get fewer outer fibers (sort of like using an undercoat brush on your dog).
Alpaca – Alpaca is a cute animal (well, we think so) resembling a Llama. Alpaca fibers are similar to sheep’s wool but actually hypoallergenic because it lacks lanolin. Alpaca fibers are naturally water-repellent and warmer than sheep’s wool.
Silk – The silk worm isn’t so much an animal as insect, but we’ve put it into this category. A silkworm creates a cocoon from one continuous thread of protein. The silk is harvested from the cocoons. The cocoons are boiled or steamed to kill the pupa and loosen the seracin that holds the cocoon together. Individual silk threads are unraveled from the cocoon and spun into a thread. Each cocoon can contain a continuous thread between 300 and 900 meters in length.
There are many different plants and plant products made into apparel fibers these days.
Cotton – The most widely produced natural fiber on the planet. The cotton seed head contains the fiber that is spun into yarn.
Linen – made from the stems of flax plants. Linen is one of the few fabrics that is stronger wet than dry.
Lyocell and Modal – fibers are manufactured from wood pulp. Chemicals are used in the production of these fibers, but the process is free from harmful solvents, and the processes are closed loop (meaning that the chemicals are captured and reused over and over again). Tencel® is a certified form of Lyocell that is guaranteed to be made from sustainable wood pulp. Bamboo Lyocell is sustainable because bamboo is a fast-growing sustainable crop. Our Fall 2018 Lightweight Base Layer collection features Tencel®.
Soy – An eco friendly fabric manufactured from food production waste (tofu manufacturing), made from the hulls of soy beans. Soy is soft, easy to care for and absorbs dyes quickly.
Viscose, Hemp, Jute, Bamboo, Sisal, and several others – are all different wood pulps and plants used to make apparel fibers.
