La Bien Aimée | Merino DK (DK weight)



    A knitted celebration of The Sound of Music with the colors of the movie reinterpreted in a winter-fresh, modern palette.

    I first met Aimée at her small and exquisite Paris yarn shop in summer 2015, just after she had launched La Bien Aimée hand-dyed yarns. To my great surprise, I found on her shelves a small collection of yarns with colors and names inspired by Julie Andrews, and I knew I had found someone who loved The Sound of Music and its songs as much as I did!

    I am thrilled to be the first shop in the US to host La Bien Aimée yarn and to debut a set of five exclusive colorways, all inspired by The Sound of Music and which Aimée and her partner created just for "My Favorite Things" collection.

    Yarn in this listing is ready to ship. That said, please give us 3 to 5 business days to get your order packed and ready to ship. We're a small team and a new kit release usually means lots of orders at once to get organized, wrapped and happily on their way.

    My Favorite Things collection is a mix of ready-to-ship and preorder items. If your order contains ready-to-ship items and preordered items, it will ship in one package when the preordered portion is ready. Expect it to arrive in about 3 to 4 weeks, and we'll keep in touch with status updates, as needed.

Beautiful Yarn

This yarn has a lovely feel, and the colors are beautiful. I bought skeins in the Blue Satin Sashes and Brown Paper Packages. The colors were exactly as pictured on this website. This yarn would be perfect for either mitt pattern or for the cowl shown in the "My Favorite Things" e-book. Very happy with this purchase; can't wait to start!

Lovely yarn

I have not started my project with this yarn, but I love the color and feel of it, and I am sure it will make a beautiful pair of mitts.

Such lovely, squishy wool!

I can't wait to get this on the needles, it's so dense and squishy. And the color is exactly as pictured. I know it's going to make an amazing cowl.
