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.

INDIGO + MADDER Indigo tree is a shrub that grows in warm regions whose leaves are used to prepare a purplish-blue dye. The dyer's madder is a plant from which a red dye is extracted. When mixing the color of indigo with the dyer's madder, we get a beautiful purple color. - Louise

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT NATURAL DYES
Due to their artisanal nature, hand-dyed wool skeins can be different from each other even if they both come from the same dye bath. By adding to the equation the use of vegetable dyes, you must know that there can be a great variation of the colors between the different lots. Since plant dyes are highly dependent on mother nature, variations can come from the plants themselves, the season, where the plant was grown and harvested and how tannins are stored. That said, natural colors are living colors that, once knit, magically develop and blend well together.


HOW TO WASH HAND-DYED YARNS
With the growing popularity of natural fibers and wool, knowing how to wash your woolies is a very hot topic! Since we grew up in the era of synthetic fibers and the washing machine, the return to nature imposes a little reminder of the basic rules.

LOVE THIS YARN

I had a skein of this for a pair of socks for my husband. Loved the colorway so much that I had to buy another skein for me.

Incredible yarn

This is such a well-behaved, polished yarn. The silk adds strength and a little sheen which makes stitches come to life and gives the overall fabric a lovely drape and elegance. The yarn is smooth and easy to knit with, it blocks well, and is a perfect weight for an indoor sweater. The colors are just mesmerizing! I love how this yarn is so saturated with color yet maintains a gentle varying of shades.
