Limited edition Indigo Scout kit by Liz Baltesz for Loop
Kits are available as a preorder until they arrive in late October.
We love the Scout Shawl and its playful use of colourwork so much! We are thrilled to have this kit for you put together by Liz Baltesz for Loop. Liz is also teaching a Scout Shawl class at Loop so you can try your hand at this beautiful knit and learn more about the stranded knitting and intarsia method used in this project.
THE KIT Includes:
350g of 50/50 merino/mulberry silk. The clean and green merino comes from the Falklands, and the silk from China. The merino is not superwash, so is very soft with a slight halo and great drape.
There are 5 colours in the kit:
Liz has been knitting for over 50 years and became fascinated with colour, starting with Kaffe Fassett and traditional Fair Isle in the 1980s.
Over the past decade, she has experimented with different forms of colour work and started designing for herself. Liz loves experimenting with varying dye plants, foraged locally or on trips around the UK. Her goal when dyeing is to produce rich and complex colours to use in colourwork projects using natural ingredients from food waste to classic natural dyes from plants such as indigo or madder.
