With its long staple fibre, BFL makes for a more durable singles yarn. Unlike most worsted spun superwash yarns, our BFL Singles has a crunchy, wooly-wool hand with a slight halo, though it knits up amazingly soft. The kinks even up beautifully with knitting. As with other singles yarns, I would knit this up at a tighter gauge for items that will take a lot of wear.
Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.
As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.
