We’re bringing you the first instalment of our new video series ‘Meet the Maker’ this week! We are so excited about this project, which is in collaboration with film maker Richard Jung. Melanie talks about her life, her design process and how the knitting community and the act of knitting gives her and others such joy.

Spring is in the air, and with summer just around the corner, our thoughts are turning to lightweight knits, perfect for Spring and Summer. Loop has been the proud stockist of mYak yarns for several years, and we want to showcase this gorgeous yarn this week. mYak’s fibres are ethically sourced directly from Tibetan herders, and are collected by hand combing the undercoats of baby yaks and cashmere goats.
