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.

The term COURTISANE designates a woman who lives at the court of the king. Over the ages, this term has evolved to take on several meanings to designate, in the feminine form, a concubine or the mistress of the sovereign. Beyond their libertine image, I have a lot of admiration for these women of influence and power who knew how to make their place at a time like the 19th century when the role of most women was limited to maternity and household chores. - Louise

Just finished my Pressed Flowers shawl and it looks great. It blocked beautifully and is very soft. I’m ordering more yarn to make the cowl.

Beau mais inattendu

J’ai été ravie de ma commande mais un peu déçue de la différence de couleur avec la photos qui avait beaucoup plus de partie claire - le fils semblait plus lumineux sur la photo - je suis contente tout de même et vais l’associer pour retrouver la lumière .
