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.
LOCH is a Gaelic word that designates a body of water such as a lake or a bay. The most famous is, without doubt, Loch Ness, located in the Highlands of Scotland. Knowing my interest for the Celtic countries, you will quickly understand where I got the inspiration for this color. - Louise

If you love to knit with Biscotte Yarns, you will fall head over heels with this artisanal, hand-dyed SUPER SOCK yarn by Louise Robert Design. Whether you are knitting a scarf, a shawl or a sweater, there's nothing better than a beautifully crafted yarn designed by a passionate knitter for knitting enthusiasts.
The yarn is just so beautiful.
The color ways are just amazing.
I like the Super Sock very much. Not as tight a twist as Bis-sock, but it's still pretty sock perfect! This is an absolutely gorgeous tonal color in a shade of lavender blue that I just love. I have a sock pattern I'll be doing with this in the fall once Supersock World Championships is over with. I like Louse Roberts yarns a lot.
This yarn is so nice! Soft yet with a firm hand - perfect for socks and shawls. Not sure what this will become yet, but I had to have it! The color looks more distinctly coral and orange in the picture - IRL, it's a lot softer contrast. Gorgeous colors none the less!
The plummy richness of this yarn color is just fantastic! Super Sock is wonderful to work with. I think this is going to make a gorgeous shawl, maybe in mosaic with a lighter color to set it off!
