Biches & Buches

I made a quick decision today and we have a new yarn on the way. Fingers crossed it will be here by the end of next week.
Le Petit Lambswool from Biches & Buches. 18 beautiful colours.
it is a pure lambswool from a family-owned fiber mill in scotland. the wool is rustic and soft at the same time, in 33 different shades, the thread is thin and sturdy, the wool is fully scoured, the bands are handwritten by caroline. a beautiful quality, presented in a way that feels like home.
technical info: 50g - 4ply - 248meters / 270yards – fingering / light worsted weight. 
tension/gauge : 23/24 sts to 10 cm/4”
needle size 3mm / US2.5 / UK11 - 3.5mm / US4 / UK9.5.
what is lambswool ? it is actually the first shearing of a sheep, considered high-grade of wool.

I ordered this colour to do a sweater for myself. The ladies at Spincycle use this yarn with Dyed in the Wool and have inspired me. Take a look at all the awesome projects on Ravelry using Le Petit Lambswool. For some reason the formatting of my post has gone a bit crazy but I don't have time to fix it. I need to knit 😘

Did you know that we are the only store in Canada that sells Namaste knitting bags? We will be bringing some to the Fair.

We won't be wearing our Throwbacks at the show but they will be on display and we will have kits.

I have four more rows on my sleeve cuff and then I'm blocking. My Guthrie should be soaking in Soak tonight. Which scent this time?

Unleash: Infused with apple and pomegranate. Unleash your creative juices with a sweet and spicy scent you'd follow anywhere.
This is a limited edition re-release and we have it in stock. Unleash first debuted 10 years ago.

It's the opening night of the NFL season - fall is here.
