We are closed until January 2021 for Maternity Leave and won’t be processing orders during this time. In the meanwhile, you are welcome to browse the shop and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.
100g superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool / silk sock-weight yarn. Beautifully soft and lustrous, too gorgeous for just socks! Would make lovely shawls and other garments too. Dyed in a semisolid colourway, made with many layers of colour to produce a rich-looking yarn with subtle variation.
Please note, the dying technique used can produce some isolated small dark and/or light contrasting spots on the yarn. Where possible, we've photographed the yarn to show any of these areas, but sometimes they remain stubbornly hidden within the skein.
Should resist felting, but best hand washed to ensure the colours have long life.
