  • Ok, so we ADORE this new yarn by ByLaxtons!! It's one of those special yarns that feels both soft, and properly woolly and strong at the same time.

    And we really appreciate the heathering and depth brought about by blending fleeces from British Bluefaced Leicester with British Masham.

    Speaking of the fleeces, they are completely and totally traceable, and have been sourced from the very finest flocks - all within 50 miles of Laxtons Mill in Yorkshire! How's that for a low-carbon footprint, eh?

    This gorgeous (GORGEOUS!) yarn is the most perfect garment yarn for those who want proper, old-school feel, high quality yarn - like the stuff your grandfather's favourite sweater was made of, that you've not been able to find since. Do you know what I mean? But it's also perfect for harder working accessories. And it smells lovely too!

    Bluefaced Leicester adds softness and the Masham brings durability and drape. Such a great combo. 

    Speaking of great combos - if you want to add more saturated colours to your palette, we recommend chucking in some Croft Shetland DK by West Yorkshire Spinners or Lore by The Fibre Co - both amazing British yarns.
