Have you noticed the beautiful plant-dyed yarn that appears in the banner slideshow for our online shop? We are very proud to be the exclusive stockist of Mette Mehlsen’s yarns, which are dyed with plants collected from western parts of Jutland, Denmark, where she lives and dyes. Susan (our lovely Loop proprietor) discovered Mette through her beautiful Instagram feed, and loved everything about what she was doing – from the natural dyes, the colours achieved and the use of white and grey wool native to Denmark right down to the beautifully simple wrapped brown paper bands. We’ve been carrying her …
The saying ‘good things come in small packages’ rang true when a tiny box of delights arrived at Loop the other week. You certainly know what huge fans we are of Madelinetosh’s sumptuous colours and quality fibres and now we have mini versions of their Merino Light – the appropriately named Unicorn Tails!
Loop’s own pattern range is steadily growing as we have another special pattern to introduce – Hygge. This time something for the little ones in your life, an adorable unisex cardigan with a beautiful textured stitch pattern and a buttoned seam. **This competition is now closed – Congratulations to Sue Johnston who chose the shade Moonless!*** Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how you can win a copy of our new pattern and a skein of Jill Draper Hudson in the colour of your choice!
