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 mottled tonal lime/chartreuse/avocado and speckled with yellow, gold, green, orange, fuchsia-purple and hot pink. The hanks are not twisted prior to speckling so coverage is more random. They are highly variegated and should be alternated if more than one is used. Two socks knit with the same hank won’t be identical. These more randomly dyed colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch.
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.
