We are pleased to introduce a new yarn released by La Bien Aimée earlier this fall, Corrie Worsted.
Corrie Worsted is a worsted weight yarn made of a special wool blend of 75% Falkland Wool 25% Gotland Wool. Gotland wool has a natural light gray tone that gives the dyed skeins a beautiful depth of color as well a soft halo fitting for fall and winter knits.
Wet blocking will brings out even more softness and a lovely drape to the knitted fabric.
Aimée curated a beautiful collection of designs for this yarn in her book Worsted, published by Laine Publishing. You can find pictures of all of the designs, all worked with Corrie Worsted, here on Ravelry.
From La Bien Aimée:
A beautiful mix of Falkland Corriedale and Gotland Wool, Corrie Worsted offers 230m (250 yds) for 100g. This worsted spun wool is deliciously soft and blooms beautifully when wet blocked, without growing at all. We are pretty sure we've developed the perfect sweater yarn and we hope that you will love it as much as we do!
