La Bien Aimee Helix
Helix is a light and lofty yarn base, exclusively spun for La Bien Aimée. This non superwash, light fingering weight yarn combines high-quality Falkland Merino with the unique Gotland wool fiber. Gotland wool is known for its wonderful luster and slight halo, making it reminiscent of mohair. This light-grey fiber mixed with the bright white merino gives the Helix yarn an incredible sheen and depth of color not possible on other La Bien Aimée yarn bases.
Designed to be held double either with itself or with our bases Mohair Silk or Kumo, Helix presents infinite color possibilities. If doubling Helix together, try two strands of the same color for a rich semi-solid, sport-weight yarn, or hold two different colors together for an original marled effect. Helix held together with Mohair Silk or Kumo results in a light and delicate fabric with a lovely drape and fluffy halo.
Loop does not stock the Kumo right now, but the Qing Fibres Melted Baby Suri is very similar although a fingering weight and not a lace weight it might make a great substitute.
