The Biches & Bûches Petite

The Biches & Bûches Petite


This is our beloved Biches & Bûches Petite, a natural, pure lambswool from Scotland, mixing softness and rusticity. We-love-it. It comes from a family-owned fiber mill settled in sheep land, and when it arrives at our Atelier, we wind it up in these small yarn balls, so you can start knitting as soon as you receive it!

The Biches & Bûches Petite is the same quality as the Biches & Bûches Chunky. The difference is just that it is thinner. 

We have 33 different shades.

What is lambswool exactly? It is actually the first shearing of a sheep, considered the high-grade of wool.

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 reminds her 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.
