We’re bringing you a short post this week, to tell you about a new kit we now have at Loop. The Harlequin Blanket Kit is brand new from CaMaRose, and we are so pleased to have it at the shop! CaMaRose is a favourite brand of many members of staff at Loop; the Danish brand is a lovely supplier of wonderful wools at very reasonable prices. They have a big colour palette with lots of beautiful shades. We stock the Yaku, Hverdagsuld and Lama-tweed, and the Snefnug, which has just arrived!

Mabel's Sister looks fantastic in this moodier colour palette

We are excited to announce that new kits for Mabel’s Sister are now available! Our newest kit uses Eden Cottage Bowland DK. This is a favourite yarn at Loop, so it was our first choice for another version of Mabel’s Sister. This special yarn is hand dyed in England and is 100% Blue Faced Leicester. It has a wonderful lustre, and is wonderfully soft and squishy once knitted.

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!
