Helix from La Bien Aimée

$39.00  

This variant is currently sold out.

Introducing Helix, a light and lofty yarn base, exclusively spun for La Bien Aimée. This non superwash, light fingering weight/laceweight yarn combines high-quality Falkland Merino with the unique Gotland wool fiber. Gotland wool is known for its wonderful luster and slight halo, making it reminiscent of mohair. This light-grey fiber mixed with the bright white merino gives the Helix yarn an incredible sheen and depth of color not possible on the other yarn bases.

Designed to be held double either with itself or with mohair (try Fae!) or Suri/Alpaca (try Oh Dang!) , Helix presents infinite color possibilities. If doubling Helix together, try two strands of the same color for a rich semi-solid, sport-weight yarn, or hold two different colors together for an original marled effect. Helix held together with Mohair Silk or Kumo results is a light and delicate fabric with a lovely drape and fluffy halo.

Care Instructions

Hand wash cold. Lay flat to dry. 

All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
