Sharing the Love of 100K on Instagram!

Sharing the Love of 100K on Instagram!

When Loop first started almost 19 years ago it was nearly impossible to imagine this moment, but we’re so humbled to have topped 100,000 followers of the shop on Instagram!

It is such an honour and a treat to run a knitting shop, but at the same time it can be tough sometimes to run an independent business. Knowing that the goings-on in our little corner of London are making it to so many people all around the globe (both on Instagram and through the blog and newsletter) make it feel like it has all been worthwhile. Not to mention all the lovely little messages we get from those who find inspiration in our posts, which really keep us going.

Whether you’re keeping an eye out for your favourite maker to host a workshop, for new patterns to drop, for special yarns to arrive, or just for the opportunity to look at the world through Susan’s eyes for a moment, we truly are so appreciative of the little bit of your day you spend with us.

To thank you for making this community so wonderful, we’re having a shop-wide sale this weekend! Everything will have an automatic discount of 15% (with the exception of classes, gift vouchers, and yarns and other bits already in our sale section, and unfortunately this discount can’t be combined with other discounts for students, NHS staff, or other discount or loyalty promotions). You don’t need a code, you don’t need to follow us or subscribe to the newsletter, you don’t even need to have been to Loop before! On Saturday and Sunday the discount will be applied automatically.

Thank you for following our journey!

It’s our little way of saying how grateful we are to you for being here. Keep being wonderful, keep making beautiful things, and please keep sharing the love!

A Sajou Gift Set for Mother’s Day

The Sajou Gift Set is full of incredibly beautiful embroidery treats.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner (well, in the UK anyway) and we can’t wait to celebrate the mothers and mother figures in our lives. It’s so special to take time to appreciate the women who have helped us become who we are, whether they have raised you from birth or entered your life in another way, and whether there’s just one who comes to mind or many beautiful and inspiring people to honour. If you’re looking for a gift for a crafty mother, our Gifts page is a great place to start. In particular, we think the Sajou Gift Set of embroidery threads and beautiful haberdashery tools is a perfect way to celebrate the day. With four different types of exquisite threads, beautiful gilded stork scissors, and other special haberdashery bits, this gift box is sure to bring a smile to any maker’s face.

Rico Glamorous Glitter

Here’s something to add a bit of sparkle — Rico Essentials Superkid Mohair Glamorous Glitter has landed in the shop and it’s making even these gloomy early March days feel a bit brighter! This blend of super kid mohair and silk is the perfect way to add a little glitz to your latest knit. It’s super easy to hold double with another yarn and would be really fun to knit a whole lace shawl in. It will just give your accessories that extra little oomph. Play around with it and see what you come up with!

New — Loop Calendar

If you want a simple way to see a snapshot of everything happening at Loop in one place, your wishes have been answered! We’re very pleased to introduce our Loop Calendar, which you can find in the drop-down menu under “Classes”. This is the easiest way to see what’s on across knit, crochet, embroidery, and other workshops, plus special visits etc. Whether you’re planning a trip to London or just browsing for a fun weekend activity, we hope you find this helpful!

Polina Pullover Lucky Winners

The Polina Pullover celebrates the wonderful folk art of Polina Raiko.

Congratulations to @marte_emilie_eide and @orchidsheart on Instagram who won our Polina Pullover giveaway in partnership with G-uld yarns! We’re so grateful to G-uld for collaborating with us and for supplying the incredible yarn for this kit. Thanks so much to everyone who entered. We hope you’ve been inspired to pick up your own Polina Pullover Kit. They’re selling fast though!

Lots of love from all of us at Loop!
