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.
IMPÉRATRICE, or empress in English, is the title given to the wife of an emperor. For me, this word reminds me of the film ‘‘Sisi’’ that I loved watching with my mother when I was a little girl. - Louise

Fell in love with this yarn at Vogue Knitting Live. I can’t wear (or even touch) mohair without breaking out in hives. This has cashmere softness and I suspect it will have some of the fuzzy properties of mohair when it’s knit up. I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Can't give it 5 stars until I do.
I have used this cashmere before, and it is incredibly soft...the finished items are warm and light.I’m making a triangular cowl out of this beautiful colourway.
I loved working with this yarn...so soft..made a perfect little baby cardigan with less than a ball of yarn. Love the color...a muted golden mustard.
This yarn is true decadence! Ultra soft and knits beautifully. A good price for cashmere, also!
This yarn is pure luxury. Soft, sumptuous, color is gorgeous.
