Finest British Bluefaced Leicester wool
New for autumn 2017, this addition to our range is plump, springy, smooth, round, squishy, firm and effortlessly versatile. DK is the classic knitters' yarn gauge, great for most types of projects but especially sweaters, and we’ve created the colour range with this in mind.
Like it’s big sister, Awesome Aran, it’s spun from the only finest fleece that the Bluefaced Leicester sheep produces, making it the absolute best of British.
Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its fleece has a subtle lustre, unique to the breed, which adds an exceptional depth of colour to our hand-dyed shades. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.
