A blend of British Cheviot and Superwash BFL wools with mohair for added strength and lustre ~ 100g. This blend can be used for all sorts of spinning projects but has been designed specifically with sock yarns in mind.
This has been mirror dyed so it can be unbraided and split into 2 halves and each half spun to make similar skeins - one for each sock. Please note however they will not be exactly the same as there are many variables in hand-made items, including how this fibre is spun by yourself.
This blend combines the ruggedness of Cheviot wool with the softness of super wash BFL. Mohair is included to add hard-wearing properties needed for areas like heels and toes and also adds a lustre and slight halo for a really interesting spin.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g (individual braids may vary by a couple of grams each way after dyeing and rinsing)
This wool / mohair blend is hand dyed with non-toxic acid dyes.
60% Cheviot wool
20% Superwash BFL wool
This blend is made with natural protein fibres, not all of which are super wash treated and could potentially felt if not washed with care. Cool hand wash with a suitable detergent for wool/delicate items or check a small spun/knitted swatch in the washing machine before washing finished items this way.
