Some of the threads we have from Au Ver A Soie - Metallic threads shown in Rose, Ice Blue and Copper

Loop has new embroidery threads! Au Ver A Soie was established in Paris in 1820, and has been producing high quality silk threads since then. They are perfect for all kinds of embroidery and stitching, even luxurious quilting! These lovely silks can also be used in jewellery making, tapestry, visible mending, cross stitch, sashiko, lace making, and more.

The 'Chilly' cardigan - this uses a dark green mohair and a pale grey cotton/linen, a great example of colour mixing with yarns!

This week we want to spend some time with the newest book from Helga Isager, ‘Stitches‘. The book launched (and sold out!) on our stand at EYF last weekend, and we are so thrilled to have hosted Helga Isager on our stand. We have been a stockist of Isager’s yarns for many years, and created our own designs using their yarns over the years including Oleander, Pinwheel Mitts and Blink. Loop now stocks two more of their yarns,┬áIsager Tweed and Isager Bomulin – we have several staff members planning their summer projects for the Bomulin already!

Alice dolls by Sophie Digard

This week we are longing for the springtime; London is feeling chilly and grey. So, how lucky we are to have brand new Sophie Digard items in gorgeous happy colours to cheer us up! We have lots of different scarves, with new designs and a new colour palette. The new palette is called ‘Pschitt’, after a French soda first sold in the 1950’s.
