Description

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.

This color refers to a very particular work by Auguste RENOIR: the Bal du Moulin de la Galette. This is a genre scene where the painter represents his friends in an outdoor lively crowd on a Sunday afternoon. This canvas displays a play of shadows and light in a blu-ish atmosphere dotted with bright spots. I've always liked the way Renoir uses blue to highlight the shaded areas in this canvas. - Louise

Granola Parchemin

This color of Granola yarn is beautiful.
Granola is a fun yarn to work with and Parchemin reminds me of a perfectly churned butter. The color is creamy and has beautiful rich tones throughout. I love wearing it. Granola is so nice next to my skin and this color just makes me feel special.

Granola Waterhouse

Perfect color. This is a fabulous yarn and the color Waterhouse is marvelous. I used it in the pattern Free Spirit as main color with Parchemin, KLMT, and Traviata. This color combination in this gorgeous yarn was wonderful. I don’t know which ILOVE more, knitting with Granola or wearing it!

Fabulous Yarn

Love this yarn. Granola’s Traviata is a gorgeous color. It blends so well with so many of the other colors. I used it with KLMT, Parchemin, and Waterhouse for Free Spirit. Perfect combo. Love knitting with it.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL YARNS!

I bought two of them to compliment a turquoise colored yarn I already had to make the Brick Pullover. It is really blossoming into quite an exquisite top! So happy with my purchase and would definitely buy it again.
