Le Biches & Bûches Le Cashmere & Lambswool: take the Le Petit Lambswool, add even more softness and warmth from cashmere, and you get this squishy delight. All the colors have a degree of tweed in them, giving a touch of variation and sometimes even small exciting speckles!

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.

For a project idea for Le Cashmere & Lambswool, see the Fleur Cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge from her Anthology 3 pattern book on Ravelry here.
