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 light tonal mocha brown then speckled lightly with gold, caramel and a touch of pink. They are mottled and tonal and though they share the same colours each is unique. These more randomly dyed colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch. Please alternate hanks if using more than one. Note that the pictures are of a different base but is a fair representation of the colourway.
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.
