Happy New Year from all of us at Loop and welcome back! We are starting the new year off with a stunning collaboration between two of our favourite yarns, Madelinetosh Merino Light and Shibui Knits Silk Cloud. At Loop, we’ve been mad for MadelineTosh for many years now. We have over 145 colours in the Merino Light base alone! The Shibui Silk Cloud is one of the most beautiful and luminous silk/mohair blends we’ve come across so having these two come together to create a new palette of 6 beautiful, rich shades of vibrant colour is a dream!
This week we are launching a new kit! The Floral KOKON Blouse designed by Teti Lutsak of Nutsknitwear is a stunning blouse designed especially for the beautiful and cosy hand-dyed chunky mohair from KOKON yarns. We fell in love with this gorgeous sweater as soon as we caught a glimpse of it. The design is a collaboration between two talented women, Teti Lutsak and Michelle Du Plessis of KOKON Yarns. Teti and Michelle were kind enough to give us a little glimpse into what inspires and nurtures their creative passions.
To say it’s been a challenging year is quite an understatement but in some ways it has given us a much needed perspective about what is really important in our lives. Family, friends and wellbeing in general became a focus and learning new skills that nurtured our yearnings for deeper meaning and lasting connections helped us stay positive. So, although this holiday season may look a bit different for many of us this year, it’s more important than ever to find ways of showing gratitude, sharing love and celebrating what truly matters.
