RENOIR 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.

This color refers to a very particular work by Auguste RENOIR: the Bal du Moulin de la Galette. This is a genre scene where the painter represents his friends in an outdoor lively crowd on a Sunday afternoon. This canvas displays a play of shadows and light in a blu-ish atmosphere dotted with bright spots. I've always liked the way Renoir uses blue to highlight the shaded areas in this canvas. - Louise

Rustic and Elegant Perfection

This beautuful and natural yarn from Louise Robert is genius. I needed sport weight yarn (300m/100g) for a mini KAL with a friend. This was perfect. Unlike some other hemp blends, this is very soft and next to sensitive skin friendly. I was reminded of the slubby texture and sheen of raw silk as I knit with this. The stitch definition even for bobbles was clear and the drape is just lovely. I purchased the colour Maya. Three skeins were enough to make the Corbis shawl by Natasja Hornby, without the tassels. More photos and details are on my Ravelry page. I will certainly be buying this yarn again especially for spring or summer weight garments. I should also mention that if you cannot make it into the shop to select your colours, the photos here on the Biscotte website are very accurate.

Projet à venir, mais magnifique couleur ainsi qu’au toucher. Bien hâte de la tricoter. Je vous en donnerai des nouvelles…


Ayant un restant d'écheveaux d'un autre projet, je veux utiliser une 3e couleur pour tricoter un foulard triangle pour le printemps.
J'adore cette fibre!

Granola non merci

Une déception. La laine fait des débris tout au long de la manutention, et en plus elle boulonne.
