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.
Enter by reposting our photo on Instagram, or simply use the hashtag #LoopLovesTov in a post of your own. And to double your chance of winning, post a comment below telling us what you would make with a skein of Tov.
Finally, a quick update on the Mabel baby cardigan post from a couple of weeks back. We promised you a tutorial video on the featured Cluster Stitch, which you’ll now find as a short video in the post.
See you next week, yarn friends!
