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
- Composition: 70% Merino wool, 30% Hemp
- Quantity (Weight): 100 grams, 3,5 oz
- Length: 300 meters (328 yds)
- Gauge: 22 - 24 stitches = 10 cm (4 in)
- Needles: 3,5 mm (US #4)
- Care: Machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water. Machine dry: This yarn has the property of stretching a lot when wet and regaining its shape when machine dried. If, after several washes/machine dryings, you notice that the garment has shrunk a bit, spray it with a little water and dry it flat, stretching it to the desired dimensions.
This is such a pretty color of yarn it has lots of variety from rosy to fuschia and I love the softness of the yarn too
This yarn is super soft and that is the reason I chose it! The colors are very pretty too! However I chose the wrong colors for fair isle pattern. Stranded color work using Waterhouse and Chardon doesn’t give the contrast I was hoping for. The yarn itself is very busy and I didn’t realize this when I ordered. I’m making it anyway because the yarn itself has a lovely hand to it! If you choose to do stranded color work I suggest ordering your colors very dark and very light. There are lots of little slubs in the yarn this is most likely the hemp which makes it so soft.
I absolutely love granola, the yarn not the food. I was almost sad as I just finished knitting a scarf with it because my next project won’t be knit using granola due to gauge. When you are sad to see a project end because you love the yarn you are working with so much that says something!
fantastic yarn, love it!
Absolutely beautiful color. Exactly as my screen represented.
A go with just about anything, color.
And its Granola, my favorite yarn.
