100g skein of Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn dyed semi-solid Maroon. This yarn contains 100% British Bluefaced Leicester wool, was spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset.
This Bluefaced Leicester DK has approximately 225m per 100g. It’s a buttery yarn that’s great for anything apart from socks. It is a strong, shiny yarn with some drape to it. It is the finest British Breed available and is in high demand hence the higher price. This is a good place to begin if you’ve only ever used merino.
The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend to create felt. You can read more about how to care for your wool on the yarn care page.
