Border Leicester is a glossy longwool that behaves very similarly to Mohair. 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 blue to resemble the cool frosty look of a winter sky.

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. It is a fairly durable wool so it would also work for a handbag or home decor item, such as a pillow cover. Let me know if you need some project ideas!

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

I am a knitter as well as a spinner, so I swatch my yarns whenever possible to take the guesswork out of your purchase! The fifth photo shows a swatch of this yarn in which 8 stitches and 6 rows = 2 inches in stockinette stitch on #10 needles

All of my yarns are spun in a smoke-free but pet-friendly and peaceful, loving 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!
