Lightness of a "Kumo" 雲

Posted by La Bien Aimée on

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. 

Needles: 3.5-6mm

 

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.
