ECUME 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.

ECUME is the french word for “sea foam” which is a foam made of sea water formed by a strong wind along the coast. For me, sea foam has a very strong symbolism. It represents the power of the elements, as majestic as they are terrifying, the beauty of the oceans and everything that lives in them... - Louise

This yarn is soft and light, perfect for a warm weather garment/wrap. The color is amazing!!! The tonal variation flows beautifully and I love the little dabs of color throughout that make my top look like a watercolor work of art! The hemp gives it a subtle earthy texture and contemporary feel. I look forward to trying another gorgeous color story in this yarn.
