At La Bien Aimée, “Happy Accidents” are skeins that came out a little different than the intended color, but still look beautiful. In this collection you won’t find defective or faulty yarn (these are what we call unhappy accidents, and are recycled into little pieces for our Corrie Confetti yarn.)
Happy Accidents can occur when colors come out too dark or light, when they lean too cool or warm, or when speckles are too heavy or light. In other words, not quite right to go by their original color name, but perfect for your next knitting project that will make everyone say “I love that cardigan, what a gorgeous color!”
Happy Accidents are now 15% off across all our yarn bases! You can find other Happy Accident bases in our new Happy Accident Collection.
The best thing about Happy Accidents is that they are limited edition, not reproducible, and completely unique. Each time you knit with a La Bien Aimée Happy Accident, you are supporting our commitment to reduce waste, embracing the unique beauty of the hand dyeing craft, and even saving money too!
Please note that as products in our “Petits Prix” collection, Happy Accidents are not eligible for return or refund.
La Bien Aimée Mohair Silk is a soft and luxurious blend of mohair and Mulberry silk. A lace weight with almost 550 yards, it adds a lovely halo to any garment or accessory, while staying light and warm at the same time. It is perfect mixed with our other merino bases, such as Merino Singles or Helix.
Add a strand of mohair to a DK weight hat or a pair of fingerless mitts and you instantly have a super cozy winter accessory! Mohair also adds great texture to any shawl, either held together with your yarn, or striped in for instant lightness.
