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.
GAUGUIN, Paul was a post-Impressionist French painter and an important figure in the Symbolist art movement of the early 1900s. I recognize myself in the process by which Gauguin was led to create his oil on canvas painting entitled ‘‘Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?’’ - Louise

Just started a project with London Fog and I absolutely love this yarn!!! It's incredibly soft and the colors are working up magically!
Beautiful yarn. Ten percent silk is just enough to make the feel luxurious. Only caveat is to alternate skeins.
My first chance to choose Biscotte yarn in person was so exciting! The display at Vogue Knitting in NYC was incredible. It was tough to make a decision. I loved meeting Louise and the helpful staff. Thanks for sharing your beautiful hand dyed yarns!🧶
DK pure is an exceptional yarn. I love the way it feels when I knit with it. It is a wonderful and soft yarn to wear. The sweater I knit in DK pure is elegant and just beautiful. I was expecting the gold color to be a bit more vibrant, what I saw online was not quite what the gold looked like when delivered. However, that was more my computer’s issue. Other DK pure yarn colors have been stunning works of art!
The color is beautiful and worked well with the other two dk pure colors I had chosen to use for the shift cowl knitting pattern. Dk pure is such a wonderful yarn to knit with.
