100% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester (BFL).
Meterage is 225m / weight 100g.
This base is soft but also very resilient due to the longer staple length of the BFL fibre. It has a creamier undertone than merino based yarns and although superwash treated, still has an 'earthy' feel.
The yarn has a high twist which creates great stitch definition.
Perfect for garments, shawls, thicker socks & other accessories.
This listing is in stock and ready to ship. The listed price is for one skein.
Hand dyed in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.
Please ensure you buy enough yarn for your project at the same time, as colours between dye batches can vary. Even within the same dye batch skeins will vary - that is the beauty and nature of hand dyed yarn - every skein is unique and individual.
Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours. It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.
