Happy Accidents: Now 15% Off!

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.

Silk Tweed is perfect for all your summer knitting. Not only does it have a soft feel, but its tweed texture adds dimension and depth to any project.
We are planning to mix this base with our favorite lace weights like Mohair Silk and Kumo.

Knit Silk Tweed with a 3-3.5mm needle for a garment or if you want to make a shawl you could use 3.75mm to create a beautiful drapey fabric.

Silk Tweed is made of 100% Silk Noil. You may be asking yourself what exactly is Silk noil. 

Silk noil,  also known as ‘raw silk’, is made from the waste fibers inside the cocoon. Once spun, these small bits of broken fiber create this really interesting nubby matte texture that gives the tweedy aspect and feels like a really soft cotton. Silk also has lots of amazing properties: it is very breathable, yet warm, it keeps moisture away from the body and is perfectly comfortable to wear next to skin.
