Advent Calendar Palooza: Jimmy Beans Craftvent Day 7

Given my shopping habits,  I was pretty sure that I knew of every yarn dye in existence, but I was wrong.  So very wrong.  Today in the Craftvent calendar is a new to me yarn by La Bien Aimee!

La Bien Aimee’s Tough Sock base is 75% Blue Faced Leicester, 25% nylon.  BFL is not something I normally knit with unless I happen to fall in love with a colorway and the dyer doesn’t offer the same colorway in a merino, but it’s a perfectly nice, squishy yarn. This colorway is Fiori.

What excited me about this yarn was that it is dyed in France.  As a Francophile that adores Paris, no one really needed to say more. Now that I know it exists, just shut up and take all my money.
