100g skein of Undyed Bluefaced Leicester DK. This yarn contains 100% British wool and was spun in Yorkshire.
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.
As this skein is undyed it has not been washed therefore contains some of the natural lanolin from the wool. When washed this yarn will plump up and feel smoother.
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.
