Yesterday I ordered a little thank you gift for a friend from Loop.

Along with Brownberry yarns these are my go-to gals for delicious gifty loveliness.

I’ve got to tell you that with this order the Loop ladies excelled themselves.

They rang me three times yesterday before I noticed that I’d inadvertently switched off the ringer on my phone.  When I rang back it was to find that they were concerned as a couple of people who had purchased the yarn had commented that it leeched colour whilst knitting.  As it’s dyed with indigo I kinda expected this and the colour was too perfect for the intended recipient to worry about this.  It will stop after a wash or two.

I thought this was pretty brilliant, especially as they offered me a discount which made the postage costs more palatable.

Even more amazing was that even though it was gone 3pm when I finally spoke with them, the gift arrived in today’s delivery.  They had packed it up and got it ready for last night’s post collection.

In my book, that’s how you do it.

Ladies from Loop, thank you so much.
