Crewel pillows at Jonathan Adler

New crewel pillows have landed at Jonathan Adler. Wasn't sure exactly what crewel was, so I went to Wikipedia which told me that it's a wool used in an embroidery technique that is at least a thousand years old. Crewel wool is fine and can be strongly twisted.

I love the contradiction of the wool and linen with the sharp, symmetrical mod patterns in muted oranges and greens. The rustic fabrics are softening, not folksy here -- this is one sophisticated set of pillows. There's a crewel table runner, too!
