Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Last December I had the privilege of visiting a fantastic yarn shop while I was on my book tour in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The shop is called Loops. I was so impressed that I want to make sure to share this knitting hotspot with all of you. The shop is nestled in an upscale outdoor shopping center. There are restaurants and bakeries and beautiful shops surrounding the knit shop which makes Loops a real destination for knitters from all over. You can really make a day of it when coming to Loops but on the other hand it is completely accessible for a quick run in and out as well. The shop is a bubbling hub of yarn-induced excitement from both the staff and customers alike.
One of the main reasons I want to feature Loops is that they are a strong supporter of Spud & Chloë and Blue Sky Alpacas. The owner, Shelley, told me that when Spud & Chloë first came on the market she already had such a trust in the Blue Sky brand that she ordered everything available sight unseen. That is some good faith! Shelley’s enthusiasm for Spud & Chloë is apparent throughout the shop.
Loops is a beautifully organized and huge shop. It is an experience kind of place. It is comfortable, easy and is staffed with some of the friendliest and smartest knitters around. The staff is positive and extremely helpful.
I love the way the shop is laid out with cubbies of yarn, samples and patterns all right together which makes for some of the easiest project shopping I’ve ever seen. It’s all right there in front of you. Together. The online shop is organized in the friendliest way as well. Be sure to check out the Spud & Chloë section of Loops’ online shop.
Loops is laden with samples at every turn. I like the way the samples the staff knits are done up in different colorways of Spud & Chloë yarn so the knitter can see the project in a variety of options. The Sidecar Jacket is gorgeous in the Carbon #7203 Outer colorway.
The Spud & Chloë pattern boxes filled with our patterns are always set right above or next to the yarn in the displays for easy access. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without my pattern box at home. It helps so much to keep my patterns organized and in perfect condition. If you don’t have a pattern box yet to store your S & C pattern collection you should really look into getting one. It is an inexpensive and good investment. Any yarn shop carrying Spud & Chloë can easily get you a pattern box if they don’t have it on hand in the shop.
Loops has their Spud & Chloë Fine alongside their other sock yarns which is a smart move. I think sock knitters like to see their sock yarn selections all in one spot. Fine is such a standout for its vibrant saturated solid colors and subtle sheen (due to the silk). There is nothing else like it.
I love this version of the Camp Hoodie I designed out of Sweater for the Spud & Chloë pattern line. At some point soon I have to make a Camp Hoodie for myself. I would wear it night and day. I might just make it using these colors I like it so much.
I can’t recommend Loops in Tulsa and their online shop highly enough. The online shop is all organized and broken down for easy, simple access to all of our products. Loops is carrying the complete yarn and pattern line for Spud & Chloë. I get asked all of the time where to find Spud & Chloë yarn and patterns. Loops has it all at your fingertips in person and online. Here you go!
Here is the general information about the shop:

I wouldn’t hesitate to call (toll free number) or email Loops for personal assistance of any sort. They are so helpful and patient and kind to their customers. I saw this firsthand! They will help you with yarn questions, pattern concerns, sending gifts, customizing an order. Anything!
I hope you can all take advantage of this topnotch retail spot for Spud & Chloë! Thank you, Loops!
