More exciting treats are arriving at Loop as we stock up our shelves for winter. As well as making sure we have plenty of all your favourites, we have lots of new yarns to welcome too. Brand new in the case of Madelinetosh’s Home, which is their latest yarn for 2014.
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.
And those neons really are electric!
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.
With all theses gorgeous jewel shades, you can have one in every colour!
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.
We can’t give too many clues to yet, but we can tell you it’s a reworking of a classic Loop design. Our new pattern using Home will be released very soon, along with several other exciting patterns we have ready to publish for this winter.
And if our sneak peek has tempted you to try this yarn for yourself, you are in luck as we are giving you the chance to win one skein in the colour of your choice.
To enter, please leave a comment below letting us know which colour is your favourite (hard to choose we know!). This competition ends at midnight on Wednesday 24th September and one winner will be selected at random.
Good Luck and Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
