Helix, a light and lofty yarn base, exclusively spun for La Bien Aimée. This non superwash, heavy 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 our other yarn bases.

Designed to be held double either with itself or with our bases Mohair Silk or Kumo, 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.
