I lived in Montréal for ten years, and one of the most fun things about learning French was figuring out all manner of knitting terms so I could follow French patterns! Well, I was proud of those French lessons when I opened this month’s KnitCrate and saw a gorgeous marled yarn perfectly named “La Brebis Fluffy Wool”.
‘Ewe’ know you want to know what that means! Yes, a ‘Brebis’ is a female sheep, or ewe, in French. This new yarn line is all about celebrating natural and raw fibers. To get its characteristic marbling, Fluffy Wool combines undyed wool from sheep of different coat colors into a bulky, 1-ply yarn.
