Le Gros Lambswool is a pure lambswool from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland. The wool is rustic and soft at the same time, it is sturdy, and the bands are handwritten by Caroline. The yarn quality is beautiful, presented in a way that feels like home.

What is lambswool? It is actually the first shearing of a sheep, considered high-grade of wool. The difference between Le Petit Lambswool and Le Gros Lambswool ? The thickness of the thread, and therefore also the length. Otherwise it is the same quality, spun for thicker sweaters and projects!

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 reminds her 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 with, and of course, that felt good wearing.

Originally in skeins/hanks, we now offer Biches & Bûches Le Gros Lambswool in yarn balls of 100g with a meterage of 192 m / 210 yards ; aran weight

16-18 sts = 10cm / 4”

We love knitting Le Gros Lambswool using needle size 5 mm/US8/UK6 - 5.5mm/US9/UK5.
