Soft lustrous Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with nylon for strength; superwash-treated for easy care of your finished projects.
This high-twist 3-ply yarn is particularly good for sock knitting; the natural lustre and durability of the BFL makes for a soft yet sturdy sock yarn with a subtle glimmer and shine. The long staple length of the BFL also makes your finished object more resistant to pilling.
The natural butter-yellow colour of the unbleached BFL gives this yarn an ivory cast. It takes up dye magnificently.
