Indian Summer Cheers! Mitts Set – British Bluefaced Leicester 4ply
A set of one variegated 50g skein and four semi-solid 20g skeins of hand-dyed British Bluefaced Leicester 4ply. These skeins have been put together specifically to work with the Cheers! Mitts pattern by Nolwenn Pensivy released in the KNITSONIK Colour To Knit club. However they would also work well together in other colourwork projects.
The base yarn is 100% non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester wool, prepared and spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. The wool is naturally cream in colour.
Bluefaced Leicester is the softest of the British breed wools and has many uses. It is soft and plump, ideal for garments and accessories. I wouldn’t recommend this yarn for socks.
There are approximately 350m per 100g in this 4ply/fingering weight yarn.
The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires hand washing unless you intend for it to felt. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical.
Please note that colours may vary on different monitors and devoices so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.
