It’s a Winter Wonderland! Holiday Treats at Loop
Deck the halls! It’s nearly the holiday season and we are feeling the spirit of the season big time this year with our first-ever super special, limited edition Loop Christmas Boxes!
This very special gift box is overflowing with some of our very favourite festive things, which we’ve curated especially for you and your loved ones. With bespoke mini skeins of yarn, holiday haberdashery treats, a limited edition Loop Joy Holiday Project Bag and tons of surprises all wrapped up in a lovely gift box, the Loop Christmas Box is the perfect way to celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, or just the joy of winter!
We’ll never reveal everything that’s inside (making this a perfect gift to yourself as well as to a loved one) but two things we’re very excited about are an exclusive colour of Orkney Angora DK just for Loop and mini skeins of Copper Glitter Merino Light, which Madelinetosh doesn’t normally make in mini skeins!
These lovely boxes of treats are available for pre-order starting today. They’ll ship by early November, meaning they should arrive in good time for your December gift exchange.
If you prefer an à la carte approach to holiday giving, our new Winter Treats section will be just the ticket. This is a treasure trove of spectacular holiday items, from a Crochet Reindeer Kit to Monahan Holiday Ribbons, which are perfect for wrapping gifts or stuffing in stockings. Loop’s limited edition Joy Project Bag will also be available to purchase on its own from Sunday 6 November. We will be adding much more special holiday loveliness in the coming weeks, so keep checking back throughout the holiday season. And don’t forget our whole Gifts section has lots of wonderful items that will make loved ones feel adored all year round. Stop by to craft your very own holiday spectacular!
We have more of Mette Mehlsen’s gorgeous Geranium Scarf Kits in the shop. These beauties sold out in a flash when they first arrived and we are so delighted to have more kits in all four colour palettes. This lovely scarf uses 12 cakes of Mette’s incredible plant-dyed wool. The strands are held double throughout, leading to tons of opportunities for mixing, matching, and marling. This intermediate pattern is perfect for everyday wear and comes in four gorgeous colourways: ‘Simone’s’ muted pinks and purples, the earthy tones of ‘Brown’, ‘Esther’s’ cool blues and greens, and ‘Johanne’s’ bold bright reds and pinks. This kit comes with all the exquisite Mette Mehlsen yarn you’ll need to complete the scarf, a printed pattern, and a Loop project bag to keep it all tidy.
How wonderful is this Bird Tote by Japanese illustrator Miyuki Matsuo? We adore the embroidered look of this printed canvas bag. Plus the sturdy cotton construction makes this the perfect accessory for life on the go, from shopping to travel to knitting while you’re out and about. Miyuki has taken her twin loves of illustration and textiles — she used to be a vintage clothing buyer in France — and turned them into such a stunning and practical object. We’re in love!
We love Mrs Cat, and Mrs Cat loves knitting! This sweet character created by Corinne Lapierre is the knitting companion you’ve always wanted, and everything you need to bring her home is in the Mrs Cat Loves Knitting Felt Craft Kit! Corinne’s work is inspired by folk art and woodland creatures, which she manages to give a super modern twist. This kit is a great way to explore stitch work and toy making, with full-scale templates and detailed stitch guides. We have tons more lovely felt embroidery treasures by Corinne in our Kits section, like her sweet Folk Birdhouse Mini Kit and her practical and beautiful Felt Pincushion Kit. Jump in!
We’ve made more wonderful Late Bloomer Mitten Kits just in time for chilly season. These beautiful mittens designed by Kristin Ledgett are fuzzy and warm and everything you want when out on a winter’s walk or just on your commute. This kit includes all the yarn you’ll need to complete these mittens up to size medium, plus a Loop project bag. The pattern is available to purchase in Making Magazine Issue 10 or as a PDF from Kristin’s Ravelry Page.
Woolly, wonderful Hand-Stitched Felted Tape Measures are just the soft-touch tool you’ll want to reach for to meet all your measuring needs. This 60-inch vinyl tape measure with both metric and imperial measurements stays put when pulled out and retracts with the press of a button. Good tools make happy crafters!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
