These super cute 25g balls of joy are spun from 100% British Bluefaced Leicester fleece and are the little version of British Blue 100. Lustrous BFL fibre is revered for its softness and silkiness with great drape, but also it's strength and resistance to pilling.
Naturally dense, it is the ideal choice for baby or lightweight garments with its temperature-regulating properties and softness. It's also Machine Washable thanks to a super wash treatment during the spinning process.
The colour palette is made up of chalky pastels with soft, bright "pops" that work so well together you can be certain of a successful colour project (even with your eyes closed!). And, of course, the size of these balls makes them perfect for colour work.

My yarn collection is concise and considered with fibres and colours carefully selected so that you can be confident in choosing a beautiful, quality yarn for whatever you wish to create.
My ethos has always been to keep things simple: to support British manufacturing where possible, to promote sustainable, natural fibres and to celebrate traditional skills. Having worked in the textile industry for most of my career and in many different guises, I am passionate about innovation and heritage in equal balance.
When you are taking the time to craft something by hand, it is as much about the process as the final outcome, so for me, it is important to use the best possible materials. This of course means using different yarns and fibres for different purposes and understanding the characteristics of each.
“I believe it is an inherent human trait to construct fabric in order to catch, clothe, nurture and decorate”
