Loopy is a great new yarn consisting of a wool core surrounded by rayon boucle. The wool is dyed one solid color, and then the rayon is dyed in multi-colors. While it makes a very nice fabric just knitted, once it is felted the real magic happens! The wool core shrinks considerably, forming a nice dense felt, and the rayon loops are contracted and captured, obscuring the individual rows and stitches. The over-all feel is that of Persian Lamb. Try this on your favorite felted bag pattern--you'll love it.
And yes, when Sally Melville's Christmas book is out, we will be happy to re-dye Mozambique as is used in her fabulous boot!
