Formerly Hennessy DK

100% Bluefaced Leicester wool

Sweaters are Hennessy DK’s ideal match. With light halo, garments knit in this yarn have an immediate soft appearance, like your favourite sweater from years ago. Also, thanks to the great staple length of BFL this yarn doesn’t pill easily.

Named for Bayfield Inlet, Bayfield is our line of Bluefaced Leicester yarns and rovings. Popular with cottagers, fishermen and paddlers, the Bayfield yarns are like the inlet, rugged, unique and worth the trip. Because these these yarns are untreated (with the exception of Bayfield Sock), they retain their natural bounce and resilience and the qualities that makes wool a special fibre. These yarns make for wonderful sweaters and accessories that retain their shape throughout wearing. With a natural shine and cream color, this yarn adds depth and tonality to gorgeous GBFibre Co. colourways.
