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.

Here are yarn requirements for the DK weight projects in "My Favorite Things":

Crisp Apple Strudel (mitts): 1 skein will make either the short or long mitts. (If you are careful with gauge, you can make two pairs of the short mitts with a single skein.) (Sample pictured in Brown Paper Packages.)
Do-Re-Mi (cowl): 2 skeins of a single colorway (sample pictured in Whiskers on Kittens)
Edelweiss (mitts): 1 skein will make either the short or long mitts. (You can make two pairs of the short mitts with a single skein.) (Sample pictured in Blue Satin Sashes.)
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.
Please feel free to be in touch with us at any time if you have questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship. We're delighted to help!
