Wow! We are so honoured and excited to welcome a new yarn to Loop, Harrisville Designs’ Nightshades. This is a moody and wonderful DK weight yarn, which is an American Cormo and Wool blend, with an airy 3-ply spin. This yarn is grown in Montana, scoured in Texas, dyed in Philadelphia, and spun in New Hampshire (where some of Brooklyn Tweed’s original yarns are also spun). Loop is very proud to be the exclusive UK stockist of this wonderful and very unique yarn.
This week on the blog, we celebrate the release of our most popular pattern from Juju’s Loops ~ Brown Eyed Susan and share some Uncommon Thread love with a prize giveaway. We have a Pom Pom trunk show in store and some more Edinburgh Yarn Festival news to share.
Last week, we introduced you to our newest product, Genmou yarns and patterns, which were a collaboration between Daruma spinners and Amirisu. We have also shown the beautiful Buaisou Indigo threads that we carry, which are spun by Daruma as well. We thought you might like to see some behind the scenes shots of this interesting, old, Japanese company.
