La Bien Aimée is thrilled to announce the launch of its brand new yarn base: Onyx!
With the same composition and meterage as our Mohair Silk, this base can be easily substituted into any pattern containing Mohair, the only difference is that the silk core has been dyed black, giving our colors an even richer depth of shade.
We have had so much fun dyeing our favorite bright and neon colors on this fluffy lace weight, and we can’t wait to see what exciting projects and interesting color combinations you choose for this base!
We’ve found that knitting it with a light coloured yarn gives the fabric a cool marled effect, but when you knit it with a dark or black yarn, the silk core melts into the background, and all you see is a dark fabric with a very bright halo.
You can also find this base in bundles for Gossip by Alexandra Davidoff.
