what is lambswool ? it is actually the first shearing of a sheep, considered to be the high-grade of wool.
the difference between Le Petit Lambswool and Le Gros Lambswool is the thickness of the yarn, and therefore also the lenght.
otherwise it is the same quality, spun for thicker sweaters and projects !
the little story : when starting to think about a woolen company, astrid was in search of the yarn she wanted to knit her designs with and offer in the shop. she was looking for something rustic, that reminds her trip to norway in 1995, discovering the pure wool from their norwegian sheep, as well as her scandinavian roots, a yarn that would make a sturdy sweater, to be worn through the years. and that rustic yarn would have to be blended with a soft feeling, that felt good knitting with, and of course, that felt good wearing.
