Bain de Soleil Shawl | Knitting Kit

$74.00 USD $80.00 USD

This shawl is an original design by Louise Robert for Biscotte Yarns. Bain de soleil (which means "sun bath" in french) highlights high quality hand-dyed yarns, from Biscotte Yarns Collection. A soft and warm sunbath to wear all year long - especially needed during the cold winter months!

"The inspiration for this shawl came from the colors themselves. Waiting for a spring that was late coming, I had a visceral need for vitamin D. This is how “Bain De Soleil” (which mean Sunbath in french) fell from my needles as would a ray of heat on my skin on a summer day." - Louise, talking about the original colors (Kit #8)

Beautiful yarn

I splurged on this kit with the mohair and orange yarn. I haven’t started the project yet, but I am very pleased with the quality and service from Biscotte yarns.

Unfortunately, the colorway I picked (#1) did not work well with this pattern. I did use one of the colors and added two colors from my stash. I will use the other two colors for another project. As always, I love your yarn! It is so nice on my old hands.
