part of our colorful series, this one was the first created. astrid fell for this red orange, and was thereafter looking for a more soft shaded background, where she chose forest green, medium blue and turquoise, with a beige holding them all together. a light sweater that will definitely put some color into your closet, shining all through the day.

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ medium green grey + very light blue + off-white (main color) + light yellow + dark red
02_ dark green grey + medium green grey + grey brown + dark red + beige (main color)
03_ dark blue black + blue grey + very light blue + off-white (main color) + medium blue
04_ dark orange grey + turquoise + grey brown + medium blue + beige (main color)
05_ custom colors : you can choose any 5 colors of our "le petit lambswool". you can discover all of the shades on the wool product page and just fill out the form underneath !

how to determine your size: you can take your favorite knitted sweater, worked in a yarn similar to the one you are considering, and measure its dimensions. it may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose ! a sweater in thin wool is often designed a little loose, so it is best to choose a slightly larger than smaller size, and the biches & bûches designs are actually not intended to be worn tight <3
