La Bien Aimée
Introducing La Bien Aimée’s brand new base, Wensley Worsted!
Wensley Worsted has the same yardage and thickness as Corrie Worsted, with 230 meters (250 yards) for 100g, and it is composed of 50% Falkland Corriedale, 25% Falkland Merino and 25% Wensleydale.
Just like Felix is to Helix, Wensley Worsted is the white base companion yarn to Corrie Worsted. The white base means that we can dye all our super bright colors on it.
Why Wensleydale? The Gotland in Corrie Worsted creates a beautiful dark halo, almost like Mohair. Wensleydale also has long fibers that create that same kind of halo, but on a white fiber. We also recommend mixing Corrie Worsted and Wensley Worsted, both yarns go together fabulously! They are the exact same thickness and were designed to be knit together or as substitutes for each other.
This brand new base will be available on a dye-to-order basis. This means that we have reserved a limited capacity in our dye schedule in the weeks following its release, and once you place your order, we will begin dyeing and preparing your yarn especially for you! Orders containing Wensley Worsted could take up to 2 weeks to prepare, and any other items in those orders will be put on hold until the entire order is ready to ship.
