Le Gros Lambswool is a pure lambswool yarn from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland. The wool is rustic and sturdy, yet soft. 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 and considered high-grade of wool. The difference between Le Petit Lambswool and Le Gros Lambswool? The thickness of the yarn. Otherwise it is the same quality, spun for thicker sweaters and projects!
The story: When starting to think about a yarn company, Astrid was looking for something to make something rustic, that would remind her of a trip to Norway in 1995. It was there that she discovered the pure wool from Norwegian sheep, as well as her Scandinavian roots, and led her to produce a yarn that would not only make a sturdy sweater that would last years, but also felt soft to knit with and wear.
