Christmas Roundup from Loop! – Part II
Welcome back to our holiday gift roundup! With Christmas drawing ever closer, this week we’ve chosen some beautiful treasures that make wonderful stocking stuffers as well as the dreamiest gifts for any knitter or textile lover. Enjoy!
A couple of mini skeins from The Little Grey Sheep tucked into an Isabella project bag with a pair of Cohana snips from Japan and a copy of Emily Foden’s lovely book Knits About Winter — you couldn’t dream of a more perfect gift for any textile lover!
Maison Sajou was founded in 1828 by Jacques-Simon Sajou with the vision of selling products for embroidery, tapestry, bobbin lace, weaving and crochet. Loop is proud to stock a beautiful range of the Sajou scissors, wooden pin cushions and tape measures, the whole range of Laine Saint-Pierre embroidery/darning threads and their very special sewing boxes brimming with amazing haberdashery. Any of these treasures would be the cherry on top of a Christmas present!
Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE Crafts combine high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce super beautiful, durable, happy-making knitting needles. Loop is proud to carry the Driftwood range of beautiful complete sets of interchangeable needles in two sizes, DPN Sets in two sizes, crochet hook sets and straight needle sets as well as replacement accessories. If you have a knitter or crocheter in your life, a set of Lykke needles would be the prefect gift — they are just exquisite!
The very special and talented Sophie Digard always produces such beautiful and wonderfully detailed treasures. We have a range of her handmade goods in the shop, any of which would make a wonderful heirloom gift.
At Loop we are proud to stock a wide range of special yarn from all over the world! From the vibrant, London-dyed Qing Fibre to the lustrous Twirl from California’s Napa Valley. We have just received more Madelinetosh, too! With over 100 colours, you’d be hard-pressed not to find the perfect hue. And of course La Bien Aimee, hand dyed in small batches in Paris, is always a favourite.
If you’re looking for a British yarn, we have a wonderful range to choose from. From the rustic and natural colours of Daughter of a Shepherd to the silky, soft tones of Old Maiden Aunt. Or what about something naturally dyed? Moel View is a natural dye studio who work with the finest wool and yarn, pairing them with botanical extracts and locally foraged plants, barks and roots to create products that enhance and inspire. And at The Little Grey Sheep everything is done in the UK from start to finish — lambing, making the hay they feed, through to the scouring (washing) plant and spinning mill, right back to the hand dyeing on the farm.
