MACKINTOSH ROSES by Louise Robert Design | ALGUA MARINA hand-dyed semi-solid yarn

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.

MACKINTOSH ROSES Art Deco is an artistic movement that experienced its heyday at the beginning of the last century. Among the artists who stood out during this period, I have always been attracted to the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh: an artist and architect who worked along side his wife. The Mackintosh’s distinguished themselves by their own style, such as the famous motif known as the “Mackintosh rose”. - Louise

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.

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.

Henriette Corbeil

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.
