British Blue Wool is made from 100% Bluefaced Leicester fleece – supremely soft and subtlety sheeny, quite simply this is Britain’s most luxurious fibre.

British blue is a naturally dense wool with good lustre, superb insulating properties and so soft that it can be worn next to the skin. This DK weight yarn in irresistible 25g balls is perfect for lightweight garments, colour work and as it has had a superwash treatment in the spinning process, making it machine washable, it is practical for baby too. Wool is natural, comfortable, breathable, absorbent to wick moisture away from the skin, cool in summer, warm in winter, perfect for baby and for layering.
With a palette of chalky pastels and bright ‘pops’ that all work together you can be sure of choosing a successful colour combination (even with your eyes closed!).
