La Bien Aimée Kumo is our newest and softest LBA base to date! Lightness of hand and the softness of Baby suri Alpaca and mulberry silk will make this yarn a joy to wear against the skin.
From top to bottom: Bois de Rose, Dawn, Fiori, Sansa & Yellow Brick Road.
Kumo 雲 stands for cloud in Japanese. Inspired by my recent travels to Japan, I felt inspired to bring an alternative fibre to our yarn line that will give you the feeling of wearing the lightness of clouds. This is a great yarn to hold together with any of our fingering weight bases to create a lusciously soft fabric for your shawls and garments.
Here are the yarn details:
La Bien Aimée Kumo 雲
74% Suri Alpaca, 26% Mulberry Silk
approx 300 meters (328 yards) for 50g skein.
Lace weight. Handwashing is recommended.
While I travelled in Japan, I had some quiet moments to swatch Kumo. I really enjoyed holding it double with our finger weight yarns and it was great to have such a light weight sweater knit on larger needles like 5.5mm.
Kumo is now available at our brick and mortar shop and online at www.labienaimee.com
