Phoenix - Bluefaced Leicester/Merino/Silk - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 7
This blend of fibres is ideal for spinning and felting, and is a wonderfully versatile, luxurious mix of Merino, British Bluefaced Leicester and Tussah silk. The fibres have been minimally blended, to ensure that the colours - scarlet, rich yellow and royal purple - remain separate to some extent. Bluefaced Leicester is well known for its softness, texture and durability, and when it's blended with buttery-soft Merino the result is a yarn with lovely bounce and elasticity.
This fibre works beautifully for spinning fine and spinning chunky. The finer you spin, the more subtle the mix of colours becomes, but regardless of the weight of the yarn, the result will be a super-soft with a silky drape. This blend is perfect for almost any project - hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters - it will suit almost anything.
The blend is:
50% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Merino, 25% Silk
The BFL in this blend is 100% British, and is also processed in the UK. The Merino is from South America, and comes from non-mulesed flocks.
Each braid weighs 100g.
