Custom Juno Colours

Custom Juno Colours
Juno colours, left to right: Orangerie, Bittersweet, Velvet, Pewter, and French Grey.

As I’ve mentioned before, we are building our range of UK independent-dyer yarns at Loop. We started carrying Juno Fibre’s Alice Lace weight yarn after meeting the dyer at Knit Nation, last summer. We loved the yarn so much, we got it in Sock weight as well.

This particular base yarn is so yummy, with its 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere content. It’s very soft and the colours glow. We would love to carry it in thicker weights but the sock weight is the thickest it is available in. So, we have ordered up the whole range, of Juno colours, in her Sport/DK weight Pearl. Only a few sample skeins are available in the shop at the moment, but it looks great!

It has a content of 40% Superfine Alpaca, 40% merino and 20% Silk and is unlike any other yarn we carry. It is both lustrous and warm with a slight halo. I’ll let you know when we receive more in stock.

But what I really wanted to announce was that the colours at the top of the post are unique to Loop! Susan requested these colours be dyed for us, to complete the range. We hope you like them as much as we do. They will be available in all three weights of Juno yarns.

The yarns have been so popular at Loop that we have all made projects from them. Check out Meghan‘s sensational Damask shawl.

  1. Hi

    Can you please let me know whether I can get the Damask shawl pattern and yarn via mail order, and advise me of the costs.

    Many Thanks

    • You have to download the Damask shawl pattern from the internet site it is linked to. You can by the yarn from our website and it will calculate the postage costs, which are likely to be under £4.

  2. Hi, the sweater from Antrhopology is very very pretty. What kind of wool is it from and where can i get the pattern?
    Many thanks

    • I’m sorry, the sweater is store bought so there is no pattern for this. But there are many lovely lace sweaters. Think about knitting in lace or sock weight yarns and search for lace sweater patterns on Ravelry
