100% BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) Superwash

100gr - 438 yds/400 meters

If you like Merino superwash sock wool you will love the BFL. Blue Faced Leicester is my favorite wool/fiber. If you are not familiar with it - try it! It is just as soft as Merino but has the added benefit of a beautiful luster and it takes dye colors brillantly. I am usually not a fan of superwash wool but for socks I find it important and in this yarn the BFL has maintained all of its luster and texture. Great stitch definition with the 4-ply tight twist so patterns really stand out even with the variegated colors. Great not just for socks but also shawls, scarves, hats or any one skein project.

The color isa greenish teal color which was super hard to photograph. I like the photograph outside the best but really this skein looks different in every light I put it in. Very interesting! But if you like peacock blue/green tones you will like this! Hand dyed by me with acid (vinegar) dyes, there are slighter lighter and darker tones which gives the skein a great depth of color. I have tried very hard to make the photos as close as possible to the actual color but of course each computer monitor shows color differently so I apologize if the color is a bit different.

I would recommend a US 1 or US 2 needles size but really you can use anything from a US 0 - US 5 depending on the gauge needed or desired.

Since it is superwash it can be washed in the washing machine but it is wool so not too hot and don't spin too much!

Please let me know if you would like me to wind the skein into a central-pull cake for you at no extra charge!
