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 glowing, rosy pink that remind me of the cherry blossom-laden branches of springtime.

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!

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 (before being dyed) 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!

US customers: purchase this yarn with any other item/s in my shop and your shipping is FREE!

All domestic orders ship within three business days via First Class mail with tracking; international orders ship on Saturdays via international First Class. There is no tracking available for international First Class (sorry!); please let me know if you need Priority mail instead and I will create a new shipping invoice for you.
