Soft and squishy, you will want to use this beautiful yarn to knit more than socks: shawls, mittens, baby clothes will be yummy!

wash in cold water and dry flat
I was knitting the "Bain de Soleil" shawl and three quarters of the way through, I was going to run out of the Flamel. Lise at Biscotte was very helpful. We didn't think there would be that much difference in the dye lots since it is a salt and pepper mix. I waited until the final lace section to use the new skein, and I'm so glad I did: the new skein had much more salt than pepper. It's working out because it's removed from the first lace section. I really liked working with all three yarns for that pattern and the pattern itself-it never got boring.
My yarn was as beautiful as I expected. I am anticipating the start of my project soon!
Beautiful yarn. Can’t wait to make the shawl
