ATHENA by Louise Robert Design | DK PURE hand-dyed Speckled yarn

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.

ATHENAis recognized as being, among other things, the goddess of wisdom, craftsmen and artists in Greek mythology. For me, Athena refers to a “high-end” stationary boutique that I loved when I was little because I was going to buy fancy pencils that I collected and notebooks which I spent hours scribbling in. - Louise

A beautiful yarn

Beautiful yarn!

I have not yet used this yarn, and I confess that I didn't have anything in particular when I purchased it. But I knew I wanted a sweater knit with this gorgeous yarn, so purchased a sweater quantity. Lovely!
