Yarn Update – BFL/Masham Aran

  • by

I’m happy to announce that for the latest yarn update, I’ve dyed some BFL/Masham Aran weight.

The 4ply version of this 75% Bluefaced Leicester 25% Masham blend has always been fairly popular. The natural grey of the Masham combined with the softness of the BFL makes for a lovely soft yarn with a gorgeous depth of colour. Of course like all my yarn it hasn’t been superwash treated and contains no synthetic fibres.

I decided to use semi-solid colours for this collection as Aran weight is often suited to garments which a lot of people tend to prefer creating from more solid colourways. If the base is popular I do hope to expand it with extra colours, including variegated colourways, in the future.

This range is named after areas local to me. I feel that suited more than using names based around flowers like I often do.

You can read more about Bluefaced Leicester in the blog post I made about it earlier this year.

If there are any colourways you’d like to see dyed on this yarn please do feel free to contact me and I’ll see what I can do!
