DK PURE ARDOISE
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.
ARDOISE, or slate, is a stone once used by teachers to make writing boards to teach their students. For me, slate is a symbol of knowledge transmission. - Louise

The yarn is a pleasure to work with. I love the feel and texture of the yarn as well as the yarn is very soft. The color of the yarn is amazing. I have just purchased this yarn in another color!
fantastic yarn! a pleasure to work with!
I really love this yarn, it was very easy to work with, no splitting and felt really nice.
The color was perfect and looked great on the finished product. I would definitely buy this yarn again.
Ecume is a lovely shade of green. This is going to make a great pair of shortie socks that feel phenomenal on the feet!
