I decided to blend some of my Llanwenog shearling wool fleeces with some of my neighbours Bluefaced Leicester fleece, BFL wool is so luxurious and soft.

The blank is knitted by myself on a hand-crank knitting machine to achieve a long tube or blank, using 1 of the skeins with a bit of waste yarn at the end to protect the edge, when dyeing.

This listing is for 1 knitted and un-dyed blank to dye your own gradient yarn. The other photo shows what I have dyed for inspiration.

It is a slightly thicker 4-ply, each blank is approx. 100g and 390m or 440yds.

This yarn is made with local Welsh fleeces, spun in a Welsh Woollen Mill and I can trace every fleece back to my farm and my neighbours. The colours matched beautifully and the yarn is fantastic. It is a blend of 75% Llanwenog and 25% BFL. It knits smoothly and is well suited for lacy projects like scarfs, shrugs and cowls, gloves and hats and also for baby clothing or toys.

I someone would like a larger order, I can knit some of the tubes for you, please send me a message if interested.
