New yarn on our shelves!

We’re excited to share the news that we are now carrying Venne’s Eco Jeans recycled yarn! It’s a beautiful yarn that is amazingly spun from items that would have been headed for a landfill somewhere in the world. Given a new life on your loom – this yarn would create a wonderfully soft wrap or scarf for anyone in your life – including you 😉

Venne Eco Jeans Recycled Yarn Nm 12/2
50g cones – 328 yards per cone (2971 yards/ lb)

100% recycled. The Eco Jeans yarn is made from recycled jeans and used plastic bottles. Worn jeans, jackets and other articles of jeans fabric will get a new life. Made of 48% cotton and 47% polyester and 5% other material. This super soft yarn is slightly thicker than 8/2 cotton and is a bit textured.

From Our Staff!

Elizabeth has woven Twill & Grace Placemats in Dusty Blue and Pale Limette on an Ivory warp. Just think of the different colours you could use to weave these placemats. Choose colours from your kitchen/dining room or your china to weave with and make this kit your own. They would make a wonderful, useful gift for someone in your life who is setting up a new home – or would appreciate a new spark of colour to a well-used one.

We can create your kit in any colour you’d like!

Simply, put the Twill & Grace kit into your cart, on the checkout screen and in the “notes” section let us know what colours you would like your kit in. Take a peek at our 8/4 cotton page to see the colour range and availability. Be sure to let us know what colour you want for the 8/2 cotton hem (it should match the main warp colour).


We offer FREE shipping on all Louet looms within Continental North America. We also offer the option to pay a $1000.00 CAD deposit on your loom with the balance due when the loom ships out to you. This gives you the flexibility to make smaller payments towards your balance, at your convenience.

  1. I have used Venne Eco Jeans Recycled Yarn with cramming and denting to make lovely scarves. They are light and airy, casual and warm. This yarn is well suited to cramming and denting because it kind of grabs onto itself and holds in place very well. I would be happy to share a few pictures.
