Border Leicester is a glossy longwool that behaves very similarly to Mohair when spun as a semi-woolen single. This yarn has a gorgeous luster to it as well as a nice halo. I hand dyed it (using professional acid dyes) in softly variegated shades of yellow, spring green and orange-gold, just like the colors found in daffodils.

There are two very similar skeins available, but this listing is for only the one described. The fifth photo shows both skeins together. I can also make more of this, just ask!

This wool is skin soft enough for some people, so you may be able to get a nice pair of mittens, arm warmers, or a hat from this yarn. (The two skeins together would definitely give you enough yardage.) It is a fairly durable wool so it would also work for a handbag or home decor item, such as a pillow cover.

Comes to you tied with pretty, hand dyed silk ribbons!

Approx. 130 yards
Worsted weight
3 oz
Average 13 wpi

Even though this is a worsted weight yarn, I recommend knitting it on #10 or 10 1/2 needles to allow the halo to fully bloom. The fourth photo shows an undyed swatch knitted on #10 needles, on which about 5 stitches and four rows = 1 inch.

All of my yarns are spun in a smoke-free but pet-friendly household on either my vintage Ashford Traditional or my handcrafted Wee Wheel, finished in Eucalan wool wash, and air dried without weights. Please wash in cold water with a gentle wool wash only!
