Blue Faced Leicester, spun at a fingering weight with cashmere (for a little extra softness and luxury) and silk (for sheen). This is a lovely marriage of three great fibers, spun just right.

One of the early tests for this yarn was to see it knit up as a sweater. It outperformed all of the expectations -- the stitch definition was perfect, it held it’s shape, and it felt incredibly soft against my skin. It also looks pretty. This yarn is spun in a way that makes colors sing on it. If you’re feeling a little bit down, this yarn is the cure. It’s a luxury yarn at a great price.
