  • Gorgeous hand-dyed 100% superwash Blue Faced Leicester (machine-washable). Brilliant for socks & shawls, but also wonderful for garments!

    Bernie & Derek have created beautiful speckled colour ways which "fade" together beautifully, but are equally gorgeous on their own.

    The construction and twist of this amazing yarn ensures good durability, meaning there is no need for nylon, yet still remaining soft when worn next to the skin. It's delightfully squishy! And unlike a superwash merino, this yarn retains its texture and loft.

    Bluefaced Leicester is a lustrous English longwool. It makes asoft and strong yarn, and takes dye beautifully. Lustrous with beautiful drape, suitable for next-to-skin garments.

    Based in beautiful Northern Ireland, Bear In Sheep's Clothing are a fabulous husband & wife team of talented indie dyers and podcasters. Bernie and Derek are passionate about luxury fibres sourced as locally and ethically as possible.   For now that means British wool, spun in Britain.

    Hand-dyed with love and care in Belfast, Bernie & Derek consider the health of the planet in every step they take: using non-toxic, heat and light fast acid dyes, and food grade citric acid as the setting agent. Every last bit of dye is exhausted from their pots. Water is reused and they use as little plastic in their packaging as possible. We love that it arrives here in giant potato sacks!

    Bear's colour palette are often inspired by the Irish countryside, cult classics and cartoons, even a piece of jewellery! They absolutely love what they do and it really shows in their gorgeous yarns!
