Bluefaced Leicester/Silk/Mohair - Heather - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 2
The blush of heather on the hillsides and moors of the British Isles is a very special thing. This colour always takes me where the air is fresh and clean and the wildness of the open country is close at hand.
This blend of Bluefaced Leicester, kid mohair and silk is superlatively soft and shiny, and the yarn will have a gentle halo when spun. How it is spun, whether it's and airy or fluffy woollen spin or a smooth worsted spin, will define the amount of halo. The silk adds strength, sheen and smoothness and the BFL gives loft and elasticity. This blend is a real delight to spin, and the resulting yarn is soft and warm, with lots of drape.
The mix is 50% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% kid mohair and 25% silk.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
