*Biche and Buche is moving towards a balled up style of yarn. In the meantime we have inventory of both twisted skeins and yarn balls depending on colorway and you may receive either style in your order. As always we will try to match dye lots within the same color when possible*

This is a pure lambswool from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland. the wool is rustic and soft at the same time, in 26 different shades, the wool is thin and sturdy, and the ball bands are handwritten by Caroline. a beautiful quality, presented in a way that feels like home.

What is lambswool ? it is actually the first shearing of a sheep, considered to be the high-grade of wool.

The difference between Le Petit Lambswool and Le Gros Lambswool is the thickness of the yarn, and therefore also the length.
otherwise it is the same quality, spun for thicker sweaters and projects!

The little story : when starting to think about a woolen company, Astrid was in search of the yarn she wanted to knit her designs with and offer in the shop. she was looking for something rustic, that reminds her trip to Norway in 1995, discovering the pure wool from their norwegian sheep, as well as her scandinavian roots, a yarn that would make a sturdy sweater, to be worn through the years. and that rustic yarn would have to be blended with a soft feeling, that felt good knitting with, and of course, that felt good wearing.
