At Loop we are crazy about haberdashery. We have an amazing selection of embroidery threads and kits. And this week we’d like to share with you some of the most beautiful embroidery and mending threads we stock. From Teinture Sauvage botanically dyed wool to Nordiska vintage linen threads from Sweden, all in extra special Loop boxes.

This week we’re so happy to be able to bring you a little podcast of a talk that was held at Loop in November 2019. We held our ‘Darners in Conversation’ talk in the shop in November 2019 with Hikaru Noguchi, Celia Pym and Rachael Matthews. We hope you enjoy listening to this fascinating conversation.

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,¬†Isager Tweed and Isager Bomulin – we have several staff members planning their summer projects for the Bomulin already!
