For a real treat in this new year, we have organised a workshop with the very talented textile artist and author Mandy Patullo!Mandy’s book Textiles Transformed has been especially popular with all of you this past year. It’s no wonder as it such a fantastic resource of information and inspiration for re-purposing our cherished fabrics into beautiful works of art. Currently on pre-order at Loop, we are expecting more copies in the next week!

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!
