Approx 100g Bluefaced Leicester Superwash yarn
400m per 100g - Fingering/4-ply weight

Bluefaced Leicester is next-to-the-skin soft and has a long staple, making it perfect for socks! It may, of course, be used for other items such as shawls, scarves, jumpers and baby items. It is naturally lustrous.

Machine wash cold, lay flat to dry.

As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

I care deeply about the environment and am aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so I make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

I try to ensure all colours look true on my monitor, but let’s face it, we know they vary, so if you’re unsure about a particular colourway just convo me!
