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.

ABSINTHE, known mainly as the famous liquor that bears its name, is an aromatic plant well known since ancient times and used at the end of the eighteenth century as an aperitif. The first time I heard about absinthe was in an art history class based on a painting by Degas: Absinthe. - Louise

DK Pure

DK pure is an exceptional yarn. I love the way it feels when I knit with it. It is a wonderful and soft yarn to wear. The sweater I knit in DK pure is elegant and just beautiful. I was expecting the gold color to be a bit more vibrant, what I saw online was not quite what the gold looked like when delivered. However, that was more my computer’s issue. Other DK pure yarn colors have been stunning works of art!

Loving dk pure!

The color is beautiful and worked well with the other two dk pure colors I had chosen to use for the shift cowl knitting pattern. Dk pure is such a wonderful yarn to knit with.

In Awe!

The cherry pie color is a beautiful red and pure dk is so soft and is one of my favorite yarn bases.

LR Pomegranate helps recreate Colors of India

I went to our art museum and saw a special display about fabrics from India. I had an inspiration to try and coordinate some colors I saw in the fabrics by knitting the shift cowl. This is a color I would have never thought of using but it worked so well with two other colors from the dk pure which is one of my favorite bases.

Yarn is very nice

The yarn is really nice but the colors were not as pretty as in the ad photo.

Disappointed. But I should know better by now.
