BLUEBELLE Fingering: Approximately 100g/438 yards superwash Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool. This is a fine, strong four-plied fingering/sock weight yarn.

These were kettle-dyed pale tonal brown then washed with light tonal grey and finished with a light wash of pink. The result is a predominantly tonal grey with a bit of beige/brown variegation and a faint pink undertone in areas. It is pretty much exactly the colour of the sun-bleached boards on my back deck!

This BFL is soft and just a little plump, with all the known and desired qualities of the fibre: hard-wearing, tends not to pill, appears almost luminescent and continues to soften over time. This spin is airy and slightly crisp, with generous yardage for shawls, accessories and garments.

 While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture and maximum gorgeousness.
