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.
YORK is a city in the north of England founded by the Romans, and one of the major cities of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom. In addition to its historical monuments dating back to the Middle Ages, this city still enforces medieval law. A law allowing the murder of a Scotsman who carries bow and arrow within the city walls is still permitted to this day. Rich in its Roman, Celtic and Nordic history, York is exactly the type of city that excites my curiosity and that I would love to visit one day. - Louise

If you love to knit with Biscotte Yarns, you will fall head over heels with this artisanal, hand-dyed SUPER SOCK yarn by Louise Robert Design. Whether you are knitting a scarf, a shawl or a sweater, there's nothing better than a beautifully crafted yarn designed by a passionate knitter for knitting enthusiasts.
This yarn is so nice! Soft yet with a firm hand - perfect for socks and shawls. Not sure what this will become yet, but I had to have it! The color looks more distinctly coral and orange in the picture - IRL, it's a lot softer contrast. Gorgeous colors none the less!
The plummy richness of this yarn color is just fantastic! Super Sock is wonderful to work with. I think this is going to make a gorgeous shawl, maybe in mosaic with a lighter color to set it off!
The color and texture of the yarn (super sock in Camaïeux) are simply superb. A real pleasure to knit.
I had the privilege of meeting the designer Louise Robert and Patrick. She is a delightful person at Vogue Knitting Live in New York City and Patrick was so helpful. It was a true joy to meet both of them. Charming and beautiful people just like the yarn.
I'm looking forward to knitting with this yarn.
Love Louise Roberts hand dyed yarns. So yummy!
