Le Gros Lambswool is a pure lambswool (the first shearing of a sheep, considered the high-grade of wool), dyed and spun at a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland. The wool is rustic and soft at the same time. Le Gros Lambswool is woolen spun.
the little story: When starting to think about a woolen company, Astrid was in search of the yarn she wanted to knit her designs with and offer in the shop. She was looking for something rustic, that reminded her of a trip to Norway in 1995, discovering the pure wool from their Norwegian sheep, as well as her Scandinavian roots, a yarn that would make a sturdy sweater, to be worn through the years. And that rustic yarn would have to be blended with a soft feeling, that felt good knitting, and of course, that felt good wearing.
