Today, I’m talking about a Bergère de France‘s yarn that I really love as I used it twice : Filomèche yarn. The first project was for a cushion cover for my book « Tricot Zen » release in 2017, and the second project was fingerless gloves for my book about Circulare knitting, released on September 21st 2018.

My opinion about Bergère de France’s yarn Filomèche
Filomèche is a intertwined yarn with irregularities more or less noticeable according to the pattern you knit. Be careful, the string is fragile (don’t pull it, but once knitted, it’s OK !
