• The 2020 Spring Collection Has Arrived!

September 12, 2020

Introducing the Louie & Lola Spring Collection, a palette of 16 fresh and light colourways to reflect the arrival of the new season. We hope you will love them as much as we do.

After what seemed like a cool and long winter, we are enjoying the arrival of cherry blossoms and magnolia in the garden and feeling a touch warmth and lightness in the mountain air.  We couldn't wait to hit the dyepots to bring that lightness to life with some new colourways.

The Spring Collection will be available throughout the season on most of our regular bases - Merino Singles (as pictured), BFL Nylon Fingering, Lola 4 Ply Sock, Barrington Merino Silk Lace, Mohair Silk Lace and BFL DK.

In other exciting news, you can also expect more shop updates from us as we are now focusing on Louie & Lola Yarns full time.  We are super grateful for all your support, orders and encouragement since we opened in mid 2019 which has enabled us to make this move - never in our wildest dreams did we ever expect to be be able to hand dye yarn for a living - and do it in such a beautiful part of the world full of colour inspiration, but here we are!!!  THANK YOU so much for making this possible - we can't wait to bring you even more yarny goodness in the future.

Over the next few weeks we will be dyeing up the Jewels of Christmas Advent Calendars (so they can be ready to ship in early November) as well as the September and October Colours of Tasmania Yarn Club colourways - so we will be super busy, which is great!

We hope you are all enjoying lots of quality knitting and crocheting at the moment and look forward to sharing a few more exciting collaborations and special projects with you in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Karina, Louie & Lola
