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.

CAMAÏEU, or en camaïeu, is a term used in the arts to describe a painting process using several tones and tints of the same color. For me, the term ‘‘monochromatic’’ reminds me of an oil painting on canvas, Man and Woman Contemplating the Moon, painted by Caspar David Friedrich, during my studies in History of Art.- Louise

  • Composition: 70% Silk, 30% Seacell

Seacell is a silky fiber made from seaweed and eucalyptus fibers. Seacell is hypoallergenic and very gentle. Algae for the marine cells are harvested in sparsely populated fjords of Iceland, in places where there is no waste or pollution from ships. Combined with silk, it creates a luxurious and shiny thread.

If you love to knit with Biscotte Yarns, you will fall head over heels with this artisanal, hand-dyed AGULA MARINA yarn by Louise Robert Design. Whether you are knitting a gorgeous shirt, a shawl or an ultra soft blanket, there's nothing better than an original, artisanal yarn designed by a passionate knitter for knitting enthusiasts.

CAUTION ON WINDING:In order to preserve the delicacy of this fibre, we advise you to wind any skein of Algua Marina with great care.

HOW TO WASH HAND-DYED YARNS
With the growing popularity of natural fibers and wool, knowing how to wash your woolies is a very hot topic! Since we grew up in the era of synthetic fibers and the washing machine, the return to nature imposes a little reminder of the basic rules.

Cliente satisfaite et emballée

Bonjour, j’ai enfin terminé mon chandail. L’expérience de tricoter avec la laine Algua Marina, sa douceur, la brillance de sa couleur rehaussé par la soie m’a procuré un réel bonheur. Je recommande cette laine sans réserve.
Merci
Joanne

Vraiment ravie de cette magnifique fibre qui ne contient pas de laine, mais seulement de la soie et du seacell! Elle est douce, beau fini reluisant et ne me pique pas! J'ai une peau ultra sensible à la laine et je suis bien contente d'avoir découvert la ALGUA MARINA. Voici le châle Gossamer, patron de Janina Kallio, que j'ai réalisé avec cette laine.

Petit chandail d'été

J'aime beaucoup ce fil il est extrémement doux cependant pour un petit chandail, ça fait un peu lourd, peut-être qu'un jour , je le raccourcirai .Pour la couleur, ma photo est plus ressemblante . C'est le patron Ziggy d'Andréa Yetman.
