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

Love this yarn! Making an afghan for my daughter.
Great service and great patternp
I just love working with this yarn. It's really soft and richly hued and works up beautifully
It was like “buttah”. Gliding effortlessly through my hands as yarnovers were made and loops were created. The colors surprised the eye with the different hues creating their own magic. This colorway was absolutely delightful to see in the product🧶
I originally purchased this yarn for another project but changed my mind, and I am so glad I did! I just finished the first of what will be two throw pillow covers to go with my white and blue living room furniture. Irish Girl is the perfect color and feel for the pillow. No knots anywhere in the two skeins I used. Some dye released in wet blocking before I seamed the sides, but color remained glorious! I am very pleased with this yarn!
