The Stars in Your Hands Shawl by Inese Sang features La Bien Aimée Helix and Mohair Silk yarns.
Stars In Your Hands is an asymmetrical shawl worked sideways from tip with irregular side increases along its left edge. It has alternating sections knit in light fingering weight wool and mohair held together and single mohair strand held alone, resulting in an ethereal, translucent fabric. Shawl showcases three panels of different colourways achieved by changing mohair CC of the double strand knit sections.
Designed as a reminder that all our hope and dreams and joy are not faraway stars and the light we need to get through whatever we are in, is at our fingertips. Especially during past year, which has affected us in many hard and heavy ways, but also has helped many of us discover the strength and resilience we didn’t know we had. All the stars we need are in our own hands. Closer than ever. - Inese Sang
La Bien Aimée (LBA) yarns are absolute heaven to knit and to wear. Each skein is a jewel. The nuance in colors have to be seen with your own eyes to be believed. LBA was founded by Aimée Gille. All yarns are handdyed in Paris, France. Such a treat to offer these yarns to you!
La Bien Aimée Mohair Silk is a soft and luxurious blend of mohair and Mulberry silk. A lace weight with almost 550 yards, it adds a lovely halo to any garment or accessory, while staying light and warm at the same time. Helix, a light and lofty yarn base, is exclusively spun for La Bien Aimée. This light fingering weight yarn combines high-quality Falkland Merino with the unique Gotland wool fiber. Gotland wool is known for its wonderful luster and slight halo, reminiscent of mohair. This light-grey fiber mixed with the bright white merino gives the Helix yarn an incredible sheen and depth of color.
