La Bien Aimee Corrie Worsted
From La Bien Aimée, a new worsted weight base has arrived!
Three new colours are now at Loop; Peach Sweater (ooh la la!), Lichen, and Mariniere Bleu.
Corriedale worsted is hand-dyed like our other beautiful bases from La Bien Aimée and blended with a melange of Corriedale and Gotland wool. The Gotland wool adds the black fibre that creates the heathery grey base of the Corrie Worsted and gives incredible depth to the gorgeous hand-dyed colours .
We are thrilled to have this base at Loop to add to the La Bien Aimée range. See the new book Worsted- A Knitwear Collection, by Aimée Gille with lots of new patterns for Corrie Worsted, published by Laine Publishing. It's absolutely gorgeous! (This is being re-printed and will be with us sometime in February)
We also have a new shawl kit - Knitprovisation, designed by Stephen West and featured in the book.
And we are very honored to have received stock of the wonderful and whimsical special edition of Corrie Worsted Confetti! The Confetti version is a limited edition.
Veera Valimaki, Sari Nordlund and Jonna Hietala have dreamt up some beautiful new designs specially for the launch of this yarn. You can see each of the designs on Ravelry. Framework, Rococo and Piilo.Fiber Content:
