Rose

We have lots of great colors of La Bien Aimée Merino Sport for Rose by Andrea Mowry online right now.  I can't wait for fall weather to return to Paris so I can wear my Rose again. I love this relaxed design, it's great to throw on over a pair of jeans or a linen tunic.  Here is the original in La Bien Aimée Merino Sport: Damask, Dusk, Rose Quartz & Winter Garden.  My good friend, Bintou knit her in the Tang fade and it's just the right amount of neon and grey that is super easy to wear!   ...

My torso is long but thick and my waist and hips are almost the same circumference but I wanted to give it a try and see if I could make it work with my wardrobe.

This is a great yarn to hold together with any of our...

La Bien Aimée x Mondim

I am very excited about my newest yarn collaboration. Usually, I work with designers to provide yarn support for designs that use La Bien Aimée. It is an extremely satisfying process to see how my yarn is transformed into a garment. Then I take the pleasure of knitting said garment.  But my newest collaboration has allowed me to work with not a designer of knitwear but instead a designer of yarn: Rosa Pomar. She is the owner of Retrosaria Rosa Pomar and the creator of her own yarn line, Rosa Pomar.  I approached Rosa last year and asked her about dyeing...

Peanut Butter & Jelly

Peanut Butter and Jelly is one of our oldest colorways. Inspired by childhood comforts of eating a sandwich stuffed with crunchy peanut butter and concord grape jelly. We developed Calliope as a gradient sister color to Peanut Butter and Jelly. Calliope melts right into another old but goodie color of ours called Andromeda. Finally, the fourth color of the set is Cassiopeia. The softest two-tone grey and goes from warm to cold tones with a subtle hint of color that smashes through like stars at night.    We are finishing up the last skeins for Edinburgh Yarn Festival and we will...
