Haberdashery Heaven

Haberdashry at Loop, LondonWhat’s knitting without all the tools and accessories? Useful and beautiful, we have a whole range of new items that are arriving in the shop now and in the next few weeks.

For scissors we have the elegant style of the Copper or Bonsai, a classic look with Brass or Rooster and the absolute cuties with the flower handles!

Our range of Monahan ribbon colours has also been growing.  Each colour of this beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon has it’s own subtle variegation.

Monaham Ribbons and Isager yarns at Loop, London

Monahan Ribbon and swatches for Oleander

As well as decoration for gifts we love it threaded through eyelets of knitting to make a pretty detail. Owner of Loop Susan is planning to pair the ribbons with Isager Highland and Alpaca 1 for the Oleander wrap!

Who better to keep nearby to hold your wraps and swingy cardigans together than this friendly lady! The Ewe Shawl Stick is made from white brass and sits neatly in your knits without snagging any stitches.

Or if you need something a bit more secure, how about a shawl pin such as the new Rounded Metal Clasps or our full colour range of Metallic Shawl pins.

Also coming soon are these stitch markers. We’ve been asked to source ones that are simple, snag free and beautiful – and we think these are the answer! The nickel ones come in a range of sizes and styles, while the coloured ones are painted metal which gives them a nice solid weight.

Handmade Butterfly Gauge

And we can never say no to a pretty needle gauge! These will be fluttering into the shop in a few weeks.

Project Bag, Nickel Stitch markers and Eucalan

Once you’ve selected all your haberdashery accoutrements, a little project bag keeps everything in one place. New in is the Pine Forest design, complete with tiny mushrooms! We’re also finding these mini bottles of Eucalan particularly handy to bring along during summer travels.

We’ve also received more of our handmade project bags by Mjseje Chafter, with Lovebirds of every colour!
