Biches & Bûches is a soft, pure lambswool yarn which comes from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland. It is both rustic and soft, thin and sturdy. Ball bands are a handwritten design by Caroline of Biches & Bûches which gives each skein a personal touch.
Le Petit Lambswool and Le Gros Lambswool are spun at different thicknesses from the same quality of lambswool. The only difference is the the thickness of the yarn, and therefore also the length/yardage. Le Gros is spun for thicker sweaters and other projects!
What is lambswool? It's the first shearing of a sheep, considered to be a high-grade of wool. It is considered the softest wool that will ever come off the sheep and is less likely to cause skin irritation.
