If your order contains a mix of Bluebell Basics and other products they will be shipped together when all products are ready.
100g skein of Cheviot Chunky dyed semi-solid Purple. This yarn contains 100% British Cheviot wool, was spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset.
This Cheviot Chunky has approximately 100m per 100g. It is a plump and deceptively soft yarn. While not soft in the same way as Bluefaced Leicester I don’t find the yarn itchy at all. It is springy and luxurious and would be great for all manner of items. A single skein is enough to make a hat, but it would be equally suited to a warm, thick winter jumper.
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.
