Marsala: Pantone Color of the Year


We are smitten with Pantone's color of the year, masala. The sophisticated color is available in a large range of tones, and makes incredibly flattering knit or crocheted garments and accessories for men and women alike.

Extended Holiday Hours!


Just in time for Christmas, we are extending our hours December 22nd and 23rd so you can have more time to do that last minute shopping. We will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and then we are closed December 24th, 25th and 26th. We've still got great stocking stuffers including Mizuba Tea's Matcha, Twenty-Four Blackbirds' hot chocolate kits, cute and custom hat kits, LOTS of handmade bags from Raven's Rags, tons of hand-dyed, unique yarn and, of course, gift cards. Don't forget to stop in (or to tell your friends and family to stop in) before Christmas!

Happy holidays from the Loop & Leaf crew, and we can't wait to ring in the new year with you!
