YORK by Louise Robert Design | ALGUA MARINA hand-dyed semi-solid 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.

YORK is a city in the north of England founded by the Romans, and one of the major cities of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom. In addition to its historical monuments dating back to the Middle Ages, this city still enforces medieval law.  A law allowing the murder of a Scotsman who carries bow and arrow within the city walls is still permitted to this day. Rich in its Roman, Celtic and Nordic history, York is exactly the type of city that excites my curiosity and that I would love to visit one day.-Louise

Seacell is a silky fiber made from seaweed and eucalyptus fibers. Seacell is hypoallergenic and very gentle. Algae for the marine cells are harvested in sparsely populated fjords of Iceland, in places where there is no waste or pollution from ships. Combined with silk, it creates a luxurious and shiny thread.
