  • Beautifully hand dyed by Becci and Marcus on their narrowboat studio on UK waterways.  These incredible colourways are painstakingly dyed in layers in order to achieve these complex and subtle results.

    Bluefaced Leicester is a lustrous English longwool. It makes a soft and strong yarn, and takes dye beautifully. This fantastic yarn is perfect for no-nylon socks, and everything else! Lustrous with beautiful drape, suitable for next-to-skin garments.

    And the colours!! Just can't explain how beautiful they are!

    Note: Skeins are not perfectly identical, if using more than one, consider alternating every few rows. Hand wash recommended.

  • Ingredients:
    100% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester

    400m (437yd)


    Recommended needle / hook size: 3.25 – 3.75mm
