This yarn is ideal for heavier weight lace, as well as Fair Isle and other colourwork techniques, giving a soft effect with a beautiful natural lustre. It's also quite hard-wearing and ideal for everyday wear. Hand dyed/painted 4-ply (400m per 100g) in high quality 100% British Blue Faced Leicester wool, worsted spun especially for us by The Natural Fibre Company at their mill in Cornwall. It gives a soft yarn with good stitch definition that takes dye beautifully. Perfect for shawls and scarves, hats and gloves, or a warm and cosy pair of socks!
