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.

CANEVAS is the french word for “canvas”. Originally, a canvas was a large fabric made of hemp used mostly for making boat sails. It was also used to make various works: embroidery, tapestry, preparatory drawings. The term "canvas" is derived from the word chanvre (which means hemp in french) and chenevis (from the Latin word cannabis). For me, a canvas is like a blank page: it opens the doors to all possibilities and invites the creative spirit that lives in each one of us! - Louise

Gorgeous, fluffy, and soft

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