You know we LOVE the original le petit lambswool so much, it was only natural that we brought in some more Biches & Bûches amazingness!
This delicious blend uses their le petit lambswool and mixes in EVEN MORE softness and warmth with luxurious cashmere! The result is perfectly squishy, sensuous, wholesome and rustic.
Like le petit lambswool, the thread is thin and sturdy, and blooms beautifully upon blocking. This yarn is first dyed, and then carded and spun. This process means that the yarn is slightly heathered and presents tiny "flickers of colour", creating depth within the knitted fabric.
Each ball band is handwritten by Caroline. A beautiful quality, presented in a way that feels like home.
Lovingly featured in both Laine and Making magazines, it's no wonder that knitters/crocheters who have experienced this yarn go back to it time and again.

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 reminded her of a 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.
for the heartful moments of going slow
putting thoughts and feelings into a single stitch
being part of making one's wardrobe
and being part of something bigger
Biches & Bûches are a Scandinavian family settled in France.
Their all-natural wool comes from a family-owned fibre mill in Scotland.
Astrid designs garments of wool with a deep love for sweaters and cozy shawls. Biches and Buches describes their yarn as "A beautiful quality, presented in a way that feels like home."
We are in love with their gorgeous yarns and designs. Seriously can't get enough of their wonderful, homey pinterest board.
