We have some wonderful new colours from Madelinetosh: that gorgeous yarn company that hand dyes yarn, deep in the heart of Texas. Loop is proud to carry a vast array of colours and bases, including some bespoke colours created especially for Loop and a few new colours to join the Tosh colour palette.
The new colours are: Abiquiu, Gentle Monster, Harvest, Horoscope, Kenobi, Marfa, Not Sorry, Salt, Sandstorm, Smokestack/Optic, Snake, and Video Baby. Take a look at some of the new colours featured below.
New Sock Yarn At Loop ~ Twist Light
Madelinetosh‘s new sock yarn Twist Light is now at Loop. The yarn content is 75% super wash merino and 25% nylon, making up the perfect blend for a soft and durable, hardwearing sock . This generous skein of 384 meters (420 yards) per 100 grams is more than enough for a pair of socks or with two skeins, knit up a generous sized lacy shawl. It is hand dyed in small batches and our first shipment, of the new colours, is already at the shop. More colours will be arriving very soon!
New colours in Merino Light
Perfect yarn colours in Merino Light for a project that fades from colour to colour ( and speckle density! ) subtly or ideal for a gradient project.
Beautiful colours in Prairie
We’ve added 10 new colours to our already huge colour selection in this beautiful yarn. It’s one of our favourites. Prairie comes in a single ply, merino laceweight, perfect for shawls or garments. Soft and luxurious , the perfect weight for a summer shawl.
All of these beautiful new colours will be arriving in all of the madelinetosh bases that we stock in the next few months including Prairie, Merino Light, Twist Light, Pasmina, Vintage and Home! And in the Autumn we’ll be getting in Tosh DK to replace the Merino DK which has now been discontinued.
Loop stocks over 100 colours of madelinetosh including our bespoke colour ‘London Cosmopolitan’ as well as a favourite shade still dyed for Loop, ‘Olivia’.
See our website for a look at all the new madelinetosh colours!
As a special treat, to celebrate the arrival of the new colours, we’re giving away one skein of Merino Light in Snake; a gorgeous rich, inky green, that we’re completely smitten with. Leave a comment on the blog and/or follow us on Instagram and use #looplovestosh in a post of your own or by reposting our post to be in with double the chance of winning this beautiful yarn. We’ll choose a winner on June 30th! Good luck!
