BLUEBELLE Fingering: Approximately 100g/438 yards superwash Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool. This is a fine, strong four-plied fingering/sock weight yarn.

These were kettle-dyed a pale, tonal antique or dusty pink/rose with beige undertones and approaching mauve in places. Occasionally there is the odd, tiny purple fleck. It’s the base colour of Sophrosyne before speckling.

Susurrus is a colourway “built” from many layers and tiny amounts of dye, which makes each batch slightly different - more so depending on the base. Some are more pink and others tend toward mauve. BFL is slightly more buttery to start with, so this is a bit warmer toned. Merino base is also pictured to show variations. 

This BFL is soft and just a little plump, with all the known and desired qualities of the fibre: hard-wearing, tends not to pill, appears almost luminescent and continues to soften over time. This spin is airy and slightly crisp, with generous yardage for shawls, accessories and garments.

While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
