Greybow #4 is here!
La Bien Aimée Corrie Confetti is a brand new limited edition yarn made from recycled fiber and threads from our mill and atelier. We have started offering small exclusive batches of Corrie Confetti through fall and winter. Every batch will be a single color, so grab it while you can, as there may not be more of that color produced for a good long while!
The Greybow legacy continues with Greybow #4, the brand new edition of our most popular Corrie Confetti colorway featured in Neons & Neutrals: A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée! You can find this beautiful yarn knit in the pink sample Yu by Valerie NG. The other yarns used are Sunrise and "AS IF" in Kumo by LA Bien Aimée.
The base color is a warm grey with rainbow colored recycled threads. It's both neutral and bright, moody and happy, but always soft and squishy. Want to pair it with a thread of Mohair Silk? Then choose Stone!
Nancy’s Speckled Sweater is an undyed brown Falkland Corriedale in a warm neutral brown / taupe. The pops of color are all recycled yarn threads from Nancy's extensive stash. This is truly a one-of-a-kind release.
RGO: RGO, which means Really Good Orange, was a color inspired by the Iconic Orange Lady, Gaye Glasspie, the famous GG. If you would to learn more about the conception of the RGO color, please read this article on our blog. Corrie Confetti RGO is an amazing bright orange with colorful recycled La Bien Aimée yarn threads spun directly in the fiber.
Ochre: I like to think of Ochre as the “original” Corrie Confetti, as it was the very first color that we released on this recycled base in September 2021. The color is based on Yellow Brick Road, one of La Bien Aimée’s all-time best sellers and my absolute favorite color.
Ultramarine: Inspired by one of our most iconic colors, Bleu Royal. You’ll ask yourself is it blue or is it purple? Pair it with one of our mohair silks to really add extra depth to this complex color, such as Violet Amethyst or Bleu Royal.
Aimée's Peach Sweater. Combining Corrie Confetti Aimée's Peach Sweater with Mohair silk Peach Sweater would produce the most faithful result, but I also think that using Aimée’s Shawl would create a light marled color, and the result would be absolutely beautiful. I am also excited to announce the release of a brand new color, Flash Fluo, exclusively on our Kumo base!

Corrie Confetti has been one of Aimée's passion projects since the pandemic. A brand new yarn, it is a one of a kind limited edition yarn comprised of a mix of recycled natural fibers that include upcycled La Bien Aimée yarn and custom dyed Falkland Corriedale. A sister yarn to Corrie Worsted, this super soft base contains 50% of dyed Corrie Worsted, and the rest is recycled fibres from the mill and colorful yarn waste from our dye studio and atelier. Confetti has a a slight thick and thin aspect to the yarn due to the recycled yarn bits that create the "Confetti" effect. It can be used for patterns that call for worsted weight or DK. You can mix it easily with Corrie Worsted.
Each spin of Confetti will be different, this means that one batch may be lighter or darker, please take this into mind when purchasing for your projects.
La Corrie Confetti est une toute nouvelle laine, une édition limitée unique en son genre composée d'un mélange de fibres naturelles recyclées dont des restes de laine La Bien Aimée et de la fibre de Falkland Corriedale teinte. Cette base d'une grande douceur contient 50% de Corrie Worsted teinte dans un coloris exclusif, et le reste est un mélange de fibres recyclées de notre filature et des bouts de laine colorés récupérés de notre studio de teinture et de notre atelier.
A partir de l'automne 2021, nous allons commencer à proposer des quantités limitées de Corrie Confetti. Chaque lot sera d'une seule couleur, alors profitez-en tant qu'il y en a, car il se peut qu'on ne fasse pas reteindre ce coloris pendant un bon bout de temps! Il y a eu Ochre, puis Greybow et Framboise. Le dernier né de la famille Confetti s'appelle Nancy's Speckled Sweater, il est inspiré de notre coloris Sandstone ! Mariez-le avec un fil de Mohair Silk pour un rendu unique et d'une douceur exceptionnelle.
