Loop is proud to be the UK stockist for Isager yarns.
The Danish company Isager has been supplying patterns and quality yarns made form natural fibres, both known and loved by knitters the world over since 1971.
The history of Isager began with designer Åse Lund Jensen (1920-1977), who established her studio in 1960.
Åse Lund Jensen’s work was rooted in the Danish crafts tradition, but she took her inspiration in particular from the Icelandic and Faroes knitting cultures.
Åse Lund Jensen was a pioneer in her field and throughout her career she worked continuously to get knitting recognised as a craft, through her many exhibitions and her work as a teacher at SKALS -School of Design and Crafts. It was here that Marianne Isager and Åse Lund Jensen met and founded their friendship. It was this friendship that later led to Marianne Isager continuing to produce eternally modern patterns and beautiful high -quality woolen yarns through the company known today as Isager.
The Isager company now resides on a small farm in Tversted, a village in the north of Jutland close to the North Sea, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
