The first issue of Making, ‘Flora’, was released last summer and sold out at Loop many times over, and when the second issue ‘Fauna’ was released in November, it practically flew out the doors. Loop loves independent publishing and Making is one of our favourites; it’s a beautiful publication that we are more than a little smitten with, and we are absolutely thrilled that our Loop exclusive Orkney Angora ‘St Magnus’ in ‘Ghost’ is featured in the Arctic Cowl by Carrie Bostick Hoge.
The ‘Arctic Cowl’ is a 1 ball perfection of a design, with a lovely feather inspired stitch design, and sure to keep you looking and feeling very cosy.
A delightful 50/50 blend of angora and lambswool, St Magnus is nothing short of sublime. The softness it offers is pure luxury, and the beautifully fuzzy halo doesn’t detract from stitch definition. It’s a perfect cowl yarn; the softest, cosiest fibre to wear next to your neck.
Ghost is one of 6 exclusive colours that Loop created with Orkney Angora. We have previously used it in another cowl pattern, the Hawick Cowl by our Loop friend Rachel Atkinson, and it’s free right here on the blog!
