 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.

ABSINTHE, known mainly as the famous liquor that bears its name, is an aromatic plant well known since ancient times and used at the end of the eighteenth century as an aperitif. The first time I heard about absinthe was in an art history class based on a painting by Degas: Absinthe. - 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.

If you love to knit with Biscotte Yarns, you will fall head over heels with this artisanal, hand-dyed ALGUA 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.

J’adore son odeur et sa couleur

Je pensais faire un châle au point de dentelle mais la grosseur ne convient pas, je vais devoir changer de projet pour mettre la matière en valeur
