Molly Martin first learned to mend when an old favourite pair of socks needed darning. Her mother taught her the technique to repair holes in the sewing room at the back of their farmhouse, where there was always a treasure trove of needles, wool, threads and fabric to play with.
Oh là là ! A treasure trove of exquisite shawls and scarves from French Designer Sophie Digard has arrived this week. Sophie Digard creates all sorts of wonderful accessories from large wraps and scarves to delicate jewellery and heirloom dolls, all beautifully crafted with incredible attention to detail and care.
The new-to-Loop La Bien Aimeé Merino Sport has made an appearance, and it is gorgeous! For now we’ve received five beautiful hand-dyed colours from Paris but we are expecting lots more in the coming days. The Merino Sport is a soft, three-ply superwash merino with a high twist that absorbs the hand-dyed colour so beautifully.
