About Biscotte Yarns
You will probably be surprised to discover that our yarn and knitwear shop is called "Biscotte"! It is certainly not because we sell Biscottes. :-)
The history of Biscotte Yarns actually started with a blog called "Biscotte & Cie" in honour of a small all-gray oriental kitten that we had at home. Originally, we were far from suspecting that this blog would one day turn into a knitting and hand-dyed yarn shop!
We started dyeing the yarns by pure pleasure and we shared the photos of our knittings on this blog. From thread to needle (the wordplay is too tempting indeed!!) we started to arouse the interest of knitsters who had asked us how to obtain our yarns...
We first offered our hand-dyed yarns online, and we quickly realized that the demand for our hand-dyed yarns was growing. The interest of knitsters and knitters was specially triggered by our self-striping (also known as Autorayante™) yarns. This is a yarn that produces a stripe effect in an automatic and completely unique way! Since 2007, we have developed and marketed Autorayante™ yarns and we are proud to count now more than 80 original colors in this collection!
