BFL Singles - Robin's Egg

The Uncommon Thread

BFL Singles - Robin's Egg

Approx 100g superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool yarn
400m (440yds) per 100g – fingering to light fingering weight

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 we 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.

20% VAT will be charged on parcels being sent within the UK, EU VAT at your country's rate

As with other hand dyed yarns, we would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

We care deeply about the environment and we're aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so we make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you intend on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

We try to ensure all colours look true on our monitor but they can vary substantially. If you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
