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 brown, then brown-grey and finally glazed with black. Overall, a warm taupe-y grey, like very dark Back Deck.

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.
