For a real treat in this new year, we have organised a workshop with the very talented textile artist and author Mandy Patullo!Mandy’s book Textiles Transformed has been especially popular with all of you this past year. It’s no wonder as it such a fantastic resource of information and inspiration for re-purposing our cherished fabrics into beautiful works of art. Currently on pre-order at Loop, we are expecting more copies in the next week!

To say it’s been a challenging year is quite an understatement but in some ways it has given us a much needed perspective about what is really important in our lives.  Family, friends and wellbeing in general became a focus and learning new skills that nurtured our yearnings for deeper meaning and lasting connections helped us stay positive. So, although this holiday season may look a bit different for many of us this year, it’s more important than ever to find ways of showing gratitude, sharing love and celebrating what truly matters. 

This week we’re so excited to tell you all about the naturally dyed yarns we stock at Loop! With summer upon us, we’re so looking forward to knitting up all these gorgeous colours into bright garments and shawls, or embroidering little motifs onto bags, jumpers and socks. We are also running a wonderful giveaway this week, so be sure to read to the end to find out what you can win and how to enter!
