The Biches & Bûches Petite Silk

The Biches & Bûches Petite Silk


This is our Biches & Bûches Petite Silk, a natural, pure lambswool with 42% silk, in 2 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 goodwearing.

The yarn comes from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland, and when it arrives at our Atelier, we wind it up into these small yarn balls, ready to be knit with as soon as you receive it in your mail.
