La Bien Aimée Tiny Tassels – 3 new colours!
Our super popular Tiny Tassels Shawl kit is back with the luxurious hand-dyed yarns of La Bien Aimée Atelier in Paris.
We have three wonderful new colour combinations for you in the super soft and luxurious cashmerino base. Sanho, a beautiful and bright turquoise with flecks of rust. Loam, an earthy and lush combination with Bois de Rose for the tassels and Ichigo, a soft coral with hints of vivid pink and bright yellow Buzz for the tassels.
We have also brought back two previous colourways, Peerie Voe and Bisous de Loop. The Bisous de Loop (kisses from Loop) colour has been specially created for us by Aimée. Such sublime beauties, all of them!
Each kit will come with the printed pattern and a lovely blue or pink Loop special edition anniversary bag. Great for carrying your projects with you or for a very special gift!
If you need some help making the tassels, we have a wonderful tutorial in the “tutorials” section of this blog page.

Each kit includes the beautiful La Bien Aimée Merino Singles in two contrasting colours, Ayre and Yellow Brick Road and comes in the large Rose colour Loop special edition anniversary bag. The pattern will be available through Libby’s Ravelry shop or her website, Truly Myrtle.
Nathalie Lété is a well known and versatile artist who lives and works in Paris. Nathalie’s work ranges from paintings to ceramics, papier mâché and textiles. We have had many of her lovely treasures at Loop for a long time . Her whimsical artwork always makes us smile!
Nathalie was with us when we celebrated our 10th Anniversary 5 years ago when she painted our lovely window. We still have parts of her beautiful drawings on the window which now feel like such an iconic piece of Loop.
We are very excited to have received some of Nathalie’s gorgeous limited edition art prints. Each design is printed in editions of 20 and has been signed and numbered by Nathalie. They are incredible!
If you’re looking for something a bit more “hands-on,” we now have Nathalie Lété printed puzzles. Three different illustrations full of imagination and beautiful imagery, the puzzles come in a sturdy box with 500 pieces.
Julie Arkell has sent us some more of her charming doll sculpture pieces. Each one is unique and made from various materials including papier mâché, scraps of fabrics, yarn and embroidery. Each one has a story to tell and are signed on the bottom by Julie.
