Skein of aran-weight Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) sheep’s wool yarn:
- 100% Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) sheep’s wool
- Grown, spun, and hand-dyed in the UK
- Aran weight (Worsted weight / Yarn category 4 - Medium)
- 100g skeins: approx. 165m per 100 g (180 yds per 3.5 oz)
- 50g skeins: approx. 82 m per 50 g (90 yds per 1.76 oz)
- Recommended needle size: 4.5mm-5.5mm (US 7 - 9)
- Worsted spun, 3-ply yarn
- Undyed (natural creamy shade)
This worsted spun Bluefaced Leicester yarn is beautifully soft, smooth, and squishy. This aran-weight (or worsted weight) yarn will knit up quickly, meaning you’ll have a winter staple in no time. It’s also a great yarn for weaving, as its thickness and smoothness will show patterns off really nicely.
If ordered in 50g quantities, this yarn will come as a cake or yarn. Any quantities of 100g or more will be shipped as hanks, which must be wound into a ball or cake before use to avoid irreconcilable tangles.
Hand wash only using cold water and pH-neutral wool wash. Avoid animated rubbing and sudden temperature changes.
Depending on the amount of spinning oil left on the yarn, I sometimes pre-wash the yarn (even these undyed colours). Nonetheless, there may be some residual spinning oil left on the yarn, as well as little pieces of hay or grass. These will not be harmful to the maker or wearer. Please don't be alarmed if the water seems slightly cream-coloured in the first soak / wash.
Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions around this product. I can also take photos of different yarns or colours next to each other if that would be helpful. Happy crafting! I hope your project is a success and gets lots of use!
