Our 100% Bluefaced Leicester fingering weight yarn is woolly and crisp, it softens with washing and blocking, but still maintains great stitch definition and drape. It is also sturdy enough to be suitable for socks, particularly for those who prefer their sock yarn to be nylon free, but please remember they will not be as hard wearing (as those made with yarns containing nylon), however they will last considerably long time with proper care.

Our yarns are dyed by hand in small batches. Every skein is unique due to the artisan nature of hand dyeing process. To achieve an even colour distribution in larger projects, alternate skeins every couple of rows.
We take great care to represent the colours of our yarns as accurately as possible but please remember that colours may vary from monitor to monitor.
