Loop has long dreamt of carrying the exquisite Plucky Knitter Yarns. We can now announce that our dream has come true! Not only do we have their Primo Fingering and Bello Worsted yarns in some of their lush colour staples, but we have six bespoke exclusive colourways that were developed just for Loop!
Plucky began in 2007 when sisters Sarah Dimond and Hayley Scharping could not find colours in the marketplace, that captured their personal vision of beautiful hues. Thus began their journey as indie dyers and their desire to create a truly unique product.
The sisters live and work in southwest Michigan.
“It’s a lovely rural area, with lots of lakes, trees and rolling hills and a mere 3 hour drive from Chicago, Illinois.”
We asked Sarah why she chose Loop to carry their yarns.
“Loop seemed like such a natural choice. Hayley and I have always loved Loop, both the store and your online presence! It’s such a fantastic shop that we have enjoyed shopping in so many times. Plucky in Loop feels like a very natural fit, and we are so happy and feel very privileged to have it there.”
We are so delighted they chose us.
“Colour is only part of the story.
I discovered for colour to truly sing, it must be placed on superior yarn. This led to my extensive search for the perfect luxury fibers that allowed for the ultimate combination of yarn and colorways.
Our yarns are custom milled to my specifications and are available only to Plucky. In a mass produced world, Plucky yarns are exclusive and unique. They are then hand-dyed in the barn studio in Michigan.” ~ Sarah Dimond
We agree that their base yarns are exquisite!
The Bello Worsted is made with the finest Merino and 45% Cashmere. It’s incredibly sumptuous, with each 105 gram skein yielding 183 metres (200 yards).
We have six bespoke colourways, as pictured below. These are exclusive to Loop and come in both weights!
New Pop Spots Samples
We love this yarn so much that we’ve knitted two new versions of Pop Spots with it. They’ve both come out super squishy and cosy!
We think you’re going to be as excited about Plucky Knitter Yarns as we are! It’s so sumptuous and we wish you could squish it over the blog. We have lots of samples knit up in the London shop so come by, if you can, and get inspired with ideas of what to knit with their beautiful yarns!
Angel is Set to Sparkle
There will be musicians and living statues around the Angel, hot chestnuts in Chapel Market, mulled wine, hot cider tea and mince pies in Camden Passage, the cast from Hoxton Hall’s ‘Puss in Boots’ and much more! Here comes Christmas.
