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 painting by Degas: Absinthe.

This yarn made a gorgeous, fluffy lace sweater. I'd definitely buy it again. The mohair is very soft, not itchy. 10/10
