BLUEBELLA 80/20: Approximately 115g/425 yards 80/20 superwash Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool and silk.

This is fingering/sock weight yarn, three plies. These were kettle-dyed a tonal rusty red-brown (it’s orange-ish brownish pinkish red-ish!) then speckled and splotched through the water with orange, red, brown and a few specks of violet. Due to the speckling no two hanks are the same. Please alternate if using more than one.

This BFL is not "smooshy" like Merino. It is a bit rustic, hard-wearing, tends not to pill and softens greatly over time, which makes it ideal for socks (though I like it for just about anything). Blended with silk, it's dense, shiny, crisp and absolutely lovely! Try a lace project with it and you'll be thrilled with the results.

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