Bowland 4ply
Eden Cottage Yarns
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
436 yards (399 meters)
100 grams (3.53 ounces)
US 1 - 2½ or 2.25 - 3mm
100% Wool
Very soft, hard wearing
yes

Bowland 4ply (was BFL Sock) is a good all-round yarn, which is soft (it fluffs out more after washing), pretty hard wearing, has a beautiful gentle sheen, and is fine and drapey. This makes it great for a really wide range of projects, including accessories and garments. I find it fine for socks, but being a pure fine wool, it may not be hardwearing enough for you, so please bear that in mind.

Stats:
100g
400m/436yds
2.5 - 4mm needles
Machine washable on a gentle cycle (handwash if possible)
Lay flat to dry

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it’s a one-skein project).
