What would a beautiful piece of knitting be without the perfect accessories to compliment it? Whether an essential tool or the finishing touch of a button we love finding the right piece of haberdashery to delight you.
We are currently counting down the days to the Selvedge Winter Fair at the end of this month where Loop will be selling a selection of treats and gift ideas. So here’s a little post to show off some of our favourite pieces and introduce you to some stunning new additions.
Plus, in this weeks exciting competition we are giving you the chance to win a ticket to the Selvedge Winter Fair!
Read to the end of the post to find out how to enter.
Though Loop will be mostly bringing haberdashery and readymade items to the fair, we will also have kits of some of our most popular patterns. Above is Quince & Co. Finch, which is used for the stripey Cameo Shawl by Paulina P. And yes, you may have spotted underneath there is her beautiful Josephine shawl which we are bringing a kit for as well!
Classic favourites like the Yozo Scissors and the little Copper Berry Stitch Markers are essentials for every project bag. Plus the many goodies we will be bringing from French haberdashery company Sajou include this vintage style wooden measuring tape.
Beautiful and useful, these wooden needle gauges have it all! Available in smaller sizes too which are perfect for attaching to your project bag you’ll never be without the means to determine the size of that needle!
Equally useful and beautiful, washi tape is every knitters saviour when it comes to following charts, or just brighting up notebooks and parcels. Now we have this adorable grumpy kitty tape dispenser your to keep an eye on your favourite pattern too.
To keep your knits not only smelling gorgeous but also projected from any pesky visitors, we have lavender sachets featuring the illustrations of Emily Maude. Plus, the handmade ceramic buttons by Laura Walker and the seemingly ceramic (they are actually bamboo coated with plastic) ChiaoGoo Blue and White needle set.
Of course, it is equally essential to have the right place to keep all your haberdashery. We are swooning over the beautiful silk screened bags and rolls from ‘Pleased to Meet’. Created by a couple who met while working for different design companies their products have a charming retro aesthetic.
