La Bien Aimée Merino Twist
A Yarn Story is proud to be the exclusive UK retailer of La Bien Aimée specialist yarn.
80% superwash merino wool is combined with nylon to create a hardworking sock yarn with a high-twist and subtle sheen for plenty of je ne sais quoi… But it’s not just for socks! Merino Twist is also fantastic for shawls and lightweight jumpers.
Each skein is lovingly hand-dyed on site at the company’s boutique and studio in Paris, and comes in a stunning array of colours from bright and bold to classic and understated.
The yarn is available in single shades with an attractive semi-solid finish that shows off the natural variation in the fibres, giving plenty of depth and individuality. It is also available as multicoloured skeins, each one unique with fabulous speckles and dramatic colour changes.
To balance the shading of La Bien Aimée’s hand-dyed yarns, we advise alternating skeins every two rows.Technical information
