As of October 2023, our Knit by Numbers base is now 50% BFL / 50% Falklands Merino. Before this it was 100% Merino

We are passionate about trying to use as much UK grown fibre as possible (both to lower transport emissions and support our local wool growing industry) and adding 50% Bluefaced Leicester to our most popular range (KBN) is certainly helping us achieve that. BFL is the absolute softest of British breeds so this scrumptious new base is still soft enough to wear next to the skin (even in the most delicate areas), but also has a little more lustre and drape than the original blend. So so looking forward to hearing what you think of this update!

Making over 100 separate shades is no small task (hehehe!), so please do bear with us if the shade you’re after is out of stock. We’re making more all the time, so it will be along ever so soon. If there is not enough stock of the shade you are looking for then please pop us an email, as we may have a little more available.

The innovative colour palette aims to provide the precise shade required. Each colour range is available in 6 shades – going from dark to light, and each colour is given a unique number reference, rather than a name, hence the range being called Knit By Numbers.
