We are very pleased to have in stock two of Lain’Amouree’s beautiful yarns! Naturally dyed by Pauline and her husband in Indre et Loire, near Tours in the Loire Valley region of France, these stunning wools would be perfect for everything from socks to sweaters.
Aphrodite is a luxurious fingering-weight blend of alpaca, silk, and cashmere. This is one of the most beautiful and lush yarns we have ever knit with. Bouncy and oh-so-soft, this 4-ply would be perfect for a cozy Honeyblossom cardigan, or combine two tones of this sumptuous yarn for an exquisite Aureate Shawl.
Cassiope is a blend of merino and nylon with the added element of stellina, which lends a lovely sparkle to this special sock yarn. We think it would make a wonderful pair of twinkly holiday socks — great for a last minute gift! Or do the edging of our Brown Eyed Susan Shawl in Cassiope for a sophisticated, subtlety sparkly shawl for yourself…
Both yarns are available in 16 colors, and each color has a story that reveals itself with every stitch. Pauline has even been gracious enough to create a bespoke color for Loop, “Un Lapin dans Camden Passage”, which means “A rabbit in Camden Passage”! This is a nod to our Logo and we are totally smitten with this exclusive colour way. It is available in both of the bases that we stock. We are very proud to be their first stockist in the UK and the only one in London.
