This winter, treat yourself with a Holiday Bobi Box which is inspired by the traditional pink peppermint!
In fact, to tell you the truth, inspiration comes from more than just pink peppermint. Let me tell you about it...
When I bought La Bobineuse in 2016, the store was full of yarn! A fairly minimal selection, but in large quantities. This means that the less popular colours remained on the shelves for a long time...
The story goes that these unpopular colours sort of gave birth to Le Pastel Club. My colleague Marie had a crazy wish to give a second life to these less attractive yarns and this project of upcycling, reuse and overdyeing immediately charmed me!
We created several beautiful ephemeral collections thanks to this project, but a few cones of pink sock yarn were still waiting their turn in the basement. Today is their time to shine! For the very last time, Le Pastel Club created 2 overdyed kits for us on pink yarn and it's absolutely magical !
So the peppermint in all this? We were looking for a theme to bring this all together offer you a beautiful Holiday Box and we said to ourselves "what is pink, smells good and is on all the dessert tables during the holiday season?" You now have the answer!
We are therefore delighted to offer you the Peppermint Flavoured Holiday Bobi Box
*The photo of the cone wall is from 2016 and reminds us of all the beautiful colours that were used in overdyeing. There aren't any of these cones left in the store now, they're all gone! *
