This hand-dyed artisanal yarn is no ordinary knitting yarn: the designer behind the knitting patterns Louise Robert Design meticulously created this beautiful collection.

It's by studying the color pallets that represent her life and career over the years that designer Louise Robert was able to imagine all of the variety available in these hand-dyed artisanal yarns.

BLUENOSE was a fishing and racing gaff rig schooner built in 1921 in Nova Scotia which became a important icon for Nova Scotia and a Canadian symbol. Nicknamed the "Queen of the North Atlantic", this gaff was later commemorated in 1963 by a replica, Bluenose II. As a child, I had the chance to visit the Bluenose II during a trip to Nova Scotia. I was so impressed by the sea and this beautiful ship that this visit filled my childhood imagination for a long time. - Louise

J’ai acheté 3 balles du même lot, une sur trois était douce. J’aimerais essayer un autre marque la prochaine fois. Pour comparer la douceur.

C'est une laine très doux. Je l'ai combiné avec Drops Alpaca et j'étais satisfaite de résultat. Il y a grand choix de couleurs.

Great Products and Excellent Customer Service

I was looking to order Mohair Silk wool on line, to match previously purchased wool. I contacted Lisette at Biscotte, and asked if they could look at the wools for me. They sent me pictures of the wools side by side and made a recommendation of a different color which I ended up purchasing and totally love. I appreciate all the staffs help they were wonderful to deal with. Thank you.
