La Bien Aimée is releasing its first Worsted weight yarn base, Corrie Worsted, and we couldn't be more excited! For a long time now, Aimee has wanted to develop a Worsted base, and when Helix came around, she knew she wanted to create a thicker version of this yarn we love so much. Instead of Falkland Merino, Aimee opted for Corriedale, just as soft and durable, as it blooms so beautifully when it's knit up and blocked. The Gotland wool adds the black fiber that create the heathered grey base of Helix and Corrie Worsted and gives such depth to our hand-dyed colors. A light grey base color, we have dyed 30 of our best-selling tonal colors on it, including a few new colorways such as Avoine and Bone, Payne's Grey, Mist, Moria, Olive Juice and Belle Rose.
Check our our color key to see all 30 colors of Corrie Worsted.
I was lucky enough to team up with three Finnish designers that I admire so much: Veera Valimaki, Jonna Hietala & Sari Nordlund. Each designer has imagined a design that corresponds to their aesthetic and highlights so beautifully the drape and texture of Corrie Worsted.
La Bien Aimée Corrie Worsted will be available on June 21st starting at 4pm (Paris time).
As always, please share your photos using our hashtags, #labienaimee and tag your projects with Corrie Worsted using the new hashtag, #labienaimeecorrieworsted.
Merci & Happy Knitting,
