CHARDON Granola hand-dyed merino & hemp yarn by Louise Robert

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.

CHARDON is the french term for many species of thorny plants including Thistle, which is the national emblem of Scotland. I have always been fascinated by everything Celtic. Maybe it's because my great-grandfather was Irish...- Louise

Chanvre et mérinos!

Quelle belles couleurs et quel plaisir, de découvrir cette nouvelle fibre! Pas plus allergène que l'alpaca (devenu mon chouchou) elle est plus solide: elle permet de travailler sans craindre que fil ne se casse, même dans les motifs complexes. J'avance un chandail, fait de haut en bas. À suivre!

Magnifique laine et magnifique couleur!

Laine d'ete parfaite: le melange laine/chanvre donne une texture magnifique et originale, la laine est tres douce.
