Le Lambswool is a beautiful wool, prepared with the special Scottish traditional savoir faire, spun and dyed in a family-owned mill in Scotland. It is composed of 100% Lambswool, the first cut from Merino Sheep, an absolutely beautiful quality.

It is completely natural (0% synthetic). It has a rustic charm whilst being very soft to knit with and wear. It has been scoured and steamed, so contains no traces of spinning oil and has added loftiness.

We love a crafted and handmade look, which always leave small traces of imperfections, which for us, are part of the charm of natural wool and of Biches & Bûches.

The ball bands are designed with Caroline's handwriting with lots of care taken where the wool becomes small yarn balls, and each label manually added to each yarn ball.
