BLUEBELLA 80/20: Approximately 115g/425 yards 80/20 superwash Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool and silk. This is fingering weight yarn, three plies.

These were kettle-dyed a tonal pumpkin and gold with brownish-purple undertones and washes of rust. There are occasional specks of dark brown, orange, yellow and red. Note that while the colours are shared, each hank is unique. Please alternate hanks if using more than one. Note the picture is of a different base but accurately depicts the colourway.

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). Please hand-wash this base, despite it being superwash. 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.

For a long, gorgeous life gently hand wash your garment in tepid water, shape a little while wet and lay flat to dry.
