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.

INDIGO (or indigo tree) is a shrub of warm regions whose leaves are used to prepare an indigo tincture. The color obtained from this famous plant is a hue of purplish-blue. - Louise

  • Composition: 70% Merino wool, 30% Hemp
  • Quantity (Weight): 100 grams, 3,5 oz
  • Length: 300 meters (328 yds)
  • Gauge: 22 - 24 stitches = 10 cm (4 in)
  • Needles: 3,5 mm (US #4)
  • Care: Machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water. Machine dry: This yarn has the property of stretching a lot when wet and regaining its shape when machine dried. If, after several washes/machine dryings, you notice that the garment has shrunk a bit, spray it with a little water and dry it flat, stretching it to the desired dimensions.

A yarn that can be worn summer or winter, machine washable and dryable. What more could you ask for? Whether you are knitting a scarf, a shawl or a sweater, there's nothing better than a beautifully crafted yarn designed by a passionate knitter for knitting enthusiasts.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT NATURAL DYES
Due to their artisanal nature, hand-dyed wool skeins can be different from each other even if they both come from the same dye bath. By adding to the equation the use of vegetable dyes, you must know that there can be a great variation of the colors between the different lots. Since plant dyes are highly dependent on mother nature, variations can come from the plants themselves, the season, where the plant was grown and harvested and how tannins are stored. That said, natural colors are living colors that, once knit, magically develop and blend well together.

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.

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.

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!
