Kumo from La Bien Aimée is a non superwash yarn and one of the softest bases we have ever felt! Lightness and the softness of Baby Suri alpaca and mulberry silk will make this yarn a joy to wear against the skin.
Kumo 雲 stands for cloud in Japanese. Inspired by Aimee's recent travels to Japan, she felt inspired to bring an alternative fibre to the LBA yarn line that will give you the feeling of wearing the lightness of clouds. This is a great yarn to hold together with any fingering weight bases to create a lusciously soft fabric for your shawls and garments.
