Bessie May

The Lishie-lou Range from Bessie May offers something different – new and exciting experimental textures, weights and mixes. I have chosen to stock three yarns from this range and I hope you find them as exciting as I do.

Nettle is a back to nature yarn with 70% organic wool with a 30% twist of undyed nettle fibre. Yes, it really is made with Stinging Nettle fibre! It’s aran weight and knits into a lovely weight fabric perfect for cabling or showing off deep stitch definition.

Grace is spun from the finest fibers of 70% super kid mohair and 30% silk and it’s as light as a feather and soft as a cloud.  A lace weight yarn in six delicious colours, that appear almost iridescent in colour clarity, only possible because of the quality of the super kid mohair.

Bee is a double knit-light weight 100% cotton yarn available in fresh bright colours. It’s name comes from the cute little cotton ‘bees’ that appear as the yarn unwinds. The little ‘bees’ nest gently within any knit or crochet design, creating a light, soft and gentle textured fabric, interesting on both sides.

All the Bessie May Patterns are designed in the Bessie May Studio, using their own Bessie May Yarns, with emphasis on style, comfort and enjoyment to make.
