Description

 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.

GIVERNY is a village on the banks of the Seine in the Normandy region of France, northeast of Paris. This is the place where Claude Monet lived and painted, making Giverny famous worldwide. Its most iconic feature is Monet's artificial pond. Filled with water lilies and covered by an elegant Japanese bridge, it appears in many of Monet's best-loved paintings, particularly those produced towards the end of his life.

    Super Sock The Kiss

    As usual the wool was exquisite. Beautiful drape and yet knits into cozy socks.

    So disappointed in this product. Not nearly enough yarn to reach the advertised 16” on the pattern. The photos on the pattern feature a shawl that must use at least twice as much yarn. This is more of a scarf than a shawl. Not worth the cost.

    Rich, gorgeous colors!

    Love this supersock from Louise Robert. It's soft, easy to work with, and the colors are rich and saturated.

    Lovely Shawl

    Just started this shawl, it is a great knit. I learned the garter tab cast on and the mosaic keeps it interesting!
