And these beauties are from Bayeux Broderie, a shop in Bayeux which sells kits of sections of the Bayeux Tapesrty. I wasnt to make my own design, ala Bayeux style. I started to plan one years ago and now am freshly inspired. The wools are grown in France, and dyed in the colours of the Tapestry. Very yummy!

La Drogerie, Paris, for Yarn, & Bayeux Too
We went to La Droguerie in Paris. They have their yarn samples hanging in hanks, and you choose by the number. Then the staff go out the back and wind off however much you've ordered. I bought these clear French blues, which shade subtly. The yarn is a bamboo/linen blend and looked lovely made up. I thought I'd do another Paperdolls, but without Fair Isle, just shading. Dunno yet. 4ply.
This was just interesting and I bought it for no good reason.
