Introducing Woolfolk Tov… and a giveaway!

Introducing Woolfolk Tov… and a giveaway!

No matter your age, we still all knit in large like our mothers and grandmothers did. It’s a tradition that has seen a proud resurgence in the last decade, and it’s a tradition with a very large amount of history. As true as this is for us, it’s true for Kristin Ford, the founder behind Woolfolk, whose grandmother taught her to knit at the age of 5.

The collection includes everything from big and cosy sweaters to accessories and echoes of Scandinavian simplicity. The design details are prominent yet refined, bold and subtle at the same time.

A large part of knitting is still its history and its tradition. But these days it’s just as much about innovation and modernity. The Woolfolk collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 is full of modern designs while still being a beautiful reminder of past traditions.

Accompanying the release of Woolfolk’s AW16 collection is a brand new yarn, and what a yarn it is! Loop is very proud to stock Tov, a gorgeous 100% Ultimate Merino yarn, cashmere soft and spun in 12 delicate plies. We love this so much because it has the feel of springy cashmere yet the durability of Merino.

If you’re as excited as we are about the new Woolfolk yarn, you’ll be excited to hear we are giving away one skein of Tov to one lucky winner! One skein is enough to make our gorgeous Spring Bloom Mitts, a pattern which is free on our blog and an all round perfect gift for the holiday season.

And as if a brand new yarn and a gorgeous new collection weren’t enough, Woolfolk are also treating us to a special collection of patterns designed for Tov, with even more of that signature Danish minimalism. We will of course be stocking even these patterns as soon as they arrive, any day now.

    • I would be tempted to knit a big, cozy hat with one skein of Tov in Teal Blue. I’m sure it would be warm and lovely!

  1. It is so beautiful! I would probably make the most luxurious bed socks out of a skein of Woolfolk or your beautiful hand warmers! Can’t wait for all the patterns from the collection to be released!

  2. Soft and squishy is what I like. I think I may make an exotic Tea Cosy for my beloved teapot, with embellished flowers in that gorgeous colourway yellow ochre x

  3. Such a beautiful warm yarn – perfect for knitting a gorgeous Christmas present for someone special! I would probably make the Spring Bloom Mitts, as they showcase the yarn so well.

  4. Mmm.. I just love the Yellow Ochre shade! I really seem to go for earthy yellows and browns these days. I would probably make a cowl with one skein. If I had more skeins I could make a cosy shawl. The wool looks beautifully squishy and soft.

  5. I would love to win a skein of Tov. I am using my stash to knit hats and mitts for family and friends for Christmas this year and I know exactly who I would knit a pair of Spring Bloom Mitts for, although I think it would be very difficult to part company with them.

  6. It’s getting to be the fingerless glove season here in Vermont, and I’d love to sport this pair and to knit with this yarn for the first time. I’m prepared to fall in love with it!

  7. I actually dreamt of knitting a sweater in Tov last night. Specifically in T6 teal blue. I really shouldn’t have fondled that yarn at Loop last night. I blame Emma (with affection). It is one of the most beautiful yarns I have ever felt.

  8. Everything. I would make everything. I would buy MORE and make everything! So lovely and warm and squishy (I can tell from HERE!)

  9. I would love to make the mitts. They are beautiful! I am participating on a Ravelry kal next week for mitts : )

  10. I would make a “Spring rabbit” from Rabbit Hole Knits in the light grey and scour my stash for a suitable yarn for a fluffy bobtail to make a cuddly friend for my latest great nephew Baptistery.

  11. I think I’d make a lovely warm hat for the cold winter days that are coming . Love reading your blog and I’ll be in London next March and plan to visit your store. Can’t wait

  12. I would love to make the mittens, they would keep me warm when I walk my Golden Retriever Amy in the months to come and incidentally I was also 5 years old when my grandma sat me down next to her on a stool and taught me to knit – that was 55 years ago.

  13. Woolfolk yarns are pure heaven! I’d love to make Rachel Atkinson’s Spring Bloom Mitts or Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s MØNT cable medallion armwarmers with Tov. Thanks for an awesome giveaway.

  14. This yarn looks amazing! I stumbled onto this giveaway after purchasing a hat pattern from Alicia Plummer. Her pattern recommends using this yarn. I would make her hat if I won a beautiful skein of Tov!

  15. I’ve ogled Woolfolks yarn for ages and would love to win a skein to try out the yarn making those cute mittens!

  16. I think it would be perfect for Amy Christoffers’ Stonecutters Cardigan in grey (light, medium, or dark) or teal. The natural and teal might be perfect for Erica Knits’ Karusellen hat. I hope I can visit Loop again in person next year!

  17. I am in love with Alicia Plummer’s new hat pattern Bridgton made with Tov. This is exactly what I would cast on if I had this yarn.

  18. I’d love to knit the beautiful Spring Bloom Mitts in Curry/Yellow Ochre. They would brighten the darkest of Winter days aswell as being so cosy and warm.

  19. This yarn looks amazing and all the colors are FAB! I would make the fingerless mittens. The Drys wrap is gorgeous too!

  20. This is beautiful yarn I really love the teal gray and gold group. I would love to make a cowl for this winter. Thank you for the chance to win!!!

  21. I would first make the beautiful spring bloom mitts. As a skater, I’m always in need of more mitts. Then I would get 3 more skeins and make a shawl!
