£24.00 / 95g skein
This beautiful yarn was hand spun and hand dyed by Suzie in East London.
Bluefaced Leicester is a traditional British sheep breed known for its loft and softness, and is similar in character to merino.
The fibre was hand-painted in soft shades of purple. By dyeing the fibre prior to spinning, the knitted fabric gains a textured, marled effect with a tweedy appearance.
It’s spun thick-and-thin 2 ply, roughly chunky weight but surprisingly airy and smooshy, perfect for a hat or snood.
We recommended you swatch to find the right tension for your project.
This very special skein is non-repeatable.
This is a handmade one-off.
