Hurrah! Just launched.

Designed by Dee Hardwicke

We are thrilled to have a stunning new kit for you in collaboration with Dee Hardwicke!

A very beautiful cozy wrap. We have almost 100 colours of the yarn in the shop but have put together some pretty wonderful, happy sets of colours, some with a London in the 60's Mary Quant vibe. 

The Dreaming of Butterflies wrap is based on Dee's Butterfly Blanket and shawl in her new book that has just launched.  Dee also painted our Christmas window in early November to kick off the festive season and her wonderful new book, The Knitted Fabric: Colourwork Projects for You and Your Home . 

Each kit includes: 

* A printed pattern

* 7 full skeins of John Arbon Knit by Numbers DK + 50g each of 4 colours (equivalent to 9 full skeins!)

* A really beautiful cotton project bag that Loop has designed especially for this kit, based on the original watercolors by Dee that inspired the design. The beautiful butterfly illustration is on both sides of the bag in pink on one side and a turquoise blue on the other.

*   A bonus gift pattern to make button covers in the butterfly motif using any spare yarn that is included in the kit. 

There will also be a limited edition handmade card that has been lovingly hand-printed and hand-stitched with Ito Silk threads by Dee Hardwicke for the first 40 kits sold.
