I’m so happy to have this new bag line at The Loopy Ewe. Mostly because I have been holding on to the samples and not using them so that I’d have them to refer to in sizing, until our own batch arrived. They arrived last week and I immediately started filling up my personal stash of Baggu Bags. What I love about them:
- the quality
- the lightweight material (doesn’t add additional weight to your projects)
- the fun colors
- the multiple sizes
- the fact that I can add zippered pouches to the open project bags (or use the zipper pouches for project bags themselves)
I took this picture to give you an idea of how the sizes compare. The teal blue bag in the bottom right corner with stuff in it, contains a pattern (5 sheets of cardstock, but no page protector) and 3 caked up skeins of worsted weight Spud and Chloe Sweater. Click on the photo to make it bigger and see the sizing labels. The Small and Medium Sets come with 3 different sized bags in a set. The Large Set comes with 2 same-sized bags. The XL Bag is sold individually. We have the bag measurements on the Loopy website. I also popped a skein of Universal’s Cotton Supreme (worsted weight) in the photo for scale.
In this photo, I kept the Large Zipper bag and skein of Cotton Supreme in there and added in the Baby Baggu (purple bag) and the Regular Baggu (lime bag) so that you could see sizing. Click on the photo to make it bigger and see the sizing labels. And the fold lines? They come all folded up and compact in a little pouch, making these bags easy to tuck in purses and luggage for times when you will need a little extra carry-all. (That is, if you’re not using them for your knitting.) That Baby Baggu is also great for small sock and scarf projects, as well as lunches. The Regular Baggu is great for large sized sweater and blanket projects, as well as groceries or fiber festival shopping.
In addition to the Baggu Bags in tonight’s Update, you’ll also find new Atenti bags and Loopy Ewe Messenger bags (the extras we had ordered with the Loopy Lite kits last fall). See? We’ve been bagging it all week. Plus, we’ve re-stocked Spud and Chloe and Blue Sky, and added their new winter colors and patterns to the lines as well. You’ll also find HiyaHiya Bamboo Circs and accessories, a re-stock of Wendy Knits patterns and Born to Knit patterns, and Schacht Matchless Double Treadle Spinning Wheels. Lastly, we put up some remaining Loopy mugs that we’ve been selling in person here at Loopy Central. Now that we have the Loopy Hadley Pottery shipping without incident, we’re being brave and giving these mugs a go, too.
We added the Club Loopy spots to the website today, which many of you have already discovered. You can find them here, while spots last. Your price includes three kits, which will be shipped to you mid-February, mid-March, and mid-April. A sure way to chase away the winter doldrums!
