Made from superwash merino, this yarn is deliciously soft and, just like home should be, comforting and cozy too! Its loosely plied strands give a subtle texture and adds to the delightful ‘squish’ factor of the yarn.

Loop has carefully selected a mix of elegant neutrals and the most vivid neons. We wanted this range of colours to give you the opportunity to play with contrasts and give a pop of colour to your knits for dull winter days.

The smooth nature of merino means no complaints of itchy hand knits, making it a great option for gift knitting. One or two skeins give the potential for hats, mittens and cowls.

Home of course can also be used for bigger projects like blankets, jumpers and cardigans. In fact, we have a little top-secret preview of a new Loop pattern! Using the dreamy shade of Sugar Plum, we love how Home shows off the textured boarder and can confirm what a pleasure it is to knit with this yarn.

  1. Impossible to choose – all the colours are so beautiful. I need to make a cosy cabled hat to go with my burgundy scarf – so if I have to choose just one colour I would to for the mouth-watering shade Tart for my hat. It looks almost good enough to eat! :)

  2. Oh WOW! So many gorgeous colours to try. How to choose just one? Sugar Plum looks beautiful and would be amazing paired with smokestack for an beautiful start of autumn project.

  3. After a LOT of deliberation…..and it was a lot, I’m picking the Farmhouse White! This color just…spoke to me. Sometimes, you just have to follow that feeling! All the colors are so beautiful it was really hard to make a decision.

  4. Thrilled to discover your website! Adding your shop to my wish-list for next visit home to UK.. Loving the Paper colour – can picture a lovely calm blanket.. Greetings from Johannesburg

  5. What a lovely yarn! Tern is my favourite colour and would make a cozy cowl. Thanks for the giveaway; I used to live in Islington (now back in Canada) and miss visiting the shop.

  6. Although I love the neon pinks and yellows, they don’t like me so I have to go for Button Jar Blue as my favourite. It just makes me happy.

  7. Oh the Hosta blue- I’d like to see the results of this ‘straw poll’?! Which colour did the most people choose?! Interesting.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
