The very first Exclusive Colourway dyed for Lusciously Loopy is Autumn in The Lakes. This has been made by the super talented Petra at Made By Black Elephant Check out her wonderful etsy Shop and follow her on Instagram or Facebook. I have some of her yarns available here and the brand new Winter in the Lakes colour is here to pre order.
When I decided to commission an exclusive hand dyed colourway I wanted the first to be something nature based. Living in the Lake District was inspiration for the four seasons in the Lake district and Petra was the first person that came to mind to dye it for me.
I am in love with what she has designed. It captures perfectly the colours and feel of Autumn in the lakes. ***The image used is not taken by me and I have not yet been bale to find the photographer to credit*** It is so hard to capture all the gorgeous shades Petra has incorporated so I made the video to help you see just how bloomin' lovely it is :)
It is available in:
Sock - 100gm 425m 75/25 merino/nylon
DK - 115gm 230m 100% Merino

Each skein will come in an organza bag. Each order will receive one handmade glass stitch marker by Libbycraft.
Please note that the photos are for illustration purposes only and show particular colourway as accurately as is possible with hand dyed yarn. The skein you receive might differ to this photo slightly. Colours do not pool or stripe and create a nice speckled / heathered effect. There are no dye lots and each skein is unique.
***No two skeins are exactly the same, so it is recommended to alternate skeins to achieve a blended effect.***
Machine washable in cold water but as with all wools it will last longer if washed in hands. Flat dry.
