55% BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) superwash
45% Silk

100gr - 438 yds/400 meters

I am a complete sucker for both BFL and Silk. Both are soft, have a super luster and take to dye colors like a fish to water. This combination is one of my all time favorites and the shine when hit by sunlight is spectacular. I love knitting shawls with this but it would also be great for a very special pair of socks, fashionable Spring hats or just about anything you need a very special luxurious skein for. Also the 4-ply tight twist of the yarn gives you great stitch definition.

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 2 or US 4 needles size but really you can use anything from a US 2 - US 7 depending on the gauge needed or desired.

I would recommend handwash only even though the BFL is superwash.

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