BLUEBELLE Lace: Approximately 100g/875 yards superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool. This is lace weight yarn on a two-ply base.
These were kettle dyed a very mottled grey-purple then speckled with black, dark brown and purple with a spot or two of HOT pink on each. This is a highly variegated colourway and no two hanks are alike though they all share the same colours. Speckling is random, please alternate hanks if using more than one. These types of colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch. Note: previous batches of this colourway were a bit more muted but I prefer this result, which will be standard in future.
This is a lovely, sturdy base. It is distinctly BFL in that it is a bit “crisp” though it is soft and even a little plump with a slightly airy spin. This allows for a fuller fabric if desired in a non-lace piece but also for well defined lace stitches with an aggressive blocking.
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
