Approx 100g superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool yarn
225m per 100g – sport/light DK weight

Bluefaced Leicester is next-to-the-skin soft and has a long staple, making it perfect for socks! It may, of course, be used for other items such as shawls, scarves, jumpers and baby items. It is naturally lustrous.

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.

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 are intending 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!
