Introducing a stunning new yarn - I'm afraid I don't have a special yarn "name" for it yet!

This is a gorgeous blend of 75% British Bluefaced Leicester and 25% Gotland wool. It's a 2-ply construction spun to fingering weight with a yardage nearer sport weight.

It is both lustrous and woolly and is beautifully soft for this kind of yarn. The underlying pale grey base colour give richness and depth to the hand dyed shades and

100 g skein / 350 m approx. (~383 yds).

Dyed in batches of four for potential garment knitting (check yardage for your pattern) but this is a yarn you could use for a really wide range of items; soft enough for accessories, a wool blend that will wear well for garments and fine and soft enough for beautiful lace shawls.

Needle size dependant on your gauge and pattern. It is recommended that you always knit a sample swatch to determine the correct needle size for your own knitting tension as this varies from person to person.

Barber Black Sheep recommends all their hand dyed yarns should be hand washed gently in a suitable detergent for delicate items for best results.

This is an in-stock item ready to be shipped. If you purchase dyed-to-order yarns at the same time, this yarn will be shipped at the same time as the custom dyed yarns.
