Brindille is Taïgas little sister. It’s the french word for twig, and just like a little lonely woody branch spreading towards the sky, its name hints at its rustic single ply qualities.

Brindille works as as a heavy fingering weight yarn which makes it sweater friendly and adaptable for different gauges. The addition of nylon to this domestic Dorset wool makes it suitable for socks and its toothy hand makes it a yarn of choice for colorwork pieces.

N E B U L A  K I D S I L K L A C E - 70% Kid Mohair 30% Mulberry Silk

Nebula is our Kidsilk lace weight yarn that will provide a dreamy halo to your knits and yet, give them structure as silk is known to be nature’s nylon.


Work it alone with bigger needles or stranded with another yarn for color play and texture delight. We most enjoy it paired with a rustic yarn for a one of kind knitted fabric and a sfumato feel reminiscent of the old paintings of Italian masters.

Bleu Poussière’s Aries is a plump 3-ply fingering weight yarn made of an exquisite blend of imported Merino Cashmere and Nylon fibres for knits all in finesse.

Because it’s superwash treated, Aries will charm you with its deep and vibrant shades while its particularly soft hand will keep envelop you with the celestial comfort of cashmere.

piedbleuaurorasaurus_5.JPG

Pied Bleu is the french common name given to a purple-ish mushroom, the Blue Foot, which reminds us of our love for colors and fungi as pied de bleu also designate the process of turning yellows to green with indigo.


Pied Bleu is our go-to yarn base for sock knitting. The Bluefaced Leicester sheep’s fibre has a long staple and combined with nylon, a high twist spinning style and a superwash treatment, it makes up for durable, cozy, and easy-to-care for socks.

T A Ï G A  R U S T I C W O R S T E D - 100% Domestic Dorset Wool

Taïga is the name given to the boreal forests of the subartic regions where one can observe a phenomenon of dancing colors in the sky that always enchanted me, the aurora borealis also known as the Northern Lights.

From a selection of the softest parts of a Dorset sheep flock in Kamouraska (Province of Quebec) to the woolen spun done in the Province of New-Brunswick, Taïga is a of a light rusticity and yet next to the skin soft. This wooly wool will keep you in touch with nature as its intrinsic qualities makes it water repellent and thus perfect for wool items destined for a journey outdoors.

Notes

 

Please note we dye yarn that comes already spun and skeined up. In rare occasions a batch may contain unpleasant knots which escape us in the process. If this happens to you we are truly sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and invite you to communicate us of any bothers so that we can notice our providers about the issue.
