  • Beautifully hand dyed by Becci and Marcus on their narrowboat studio on UK waterways.

    Splendiferous' new blend of British Blue Faced Leicester and Silk makes for a beautifully soft and strong yarn.

    The yarn is worsted spun which makes it nice and lofty. And although it looks and behaves like a proper "crunchy" yarn, it defiitely doesn't feel like one - no itchiness, and very, very soft and smooshy.

    Perfect for luxurious garments and accessories. The drape after blocking is phenomenal thanks to the silk content. Lace work is beautiful with this yarn too.

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

  • About RiverKnits

    Becci and Markus, both engineers by trade, hand dye British wool yarns while travelling around the UK waterways on their narrowboat home and studio.

    RiverKnits wool yarn is all sustainably sourced from within the UK, you won’t find any Merino here! The majority of the range today is Bluefaced Leicester; a lustrous English longwool. It makes a soft and strong yarn, and takes dye beautifully.

    The 100% BFL which is perfect for no-nylon socks, and everything else. RiverKnits' blends with silk and cashmere make drool-worthy shawls and other luxury garments. 

    RiverKnits yarn is dyed in layers, which takes a long time, but it is so worth it for the complex and subtle appearance!

Who doesn't love a cheeky little freebie now and again?
