This yarn is fat, smooshy and glorious and will make the warmest, softest hat, cowl or gloves EVER!

The long staple BFL makes this yarn hard wearing while a large percentage of the softest baby Alpaca gives a gentle halo, a bit of drape and tons of insulation. The yarn is a three ply structure, perfect for open details like yarnovers.

We only use supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester which means that the fibre is picked through at twice the rate that normal wools are handled and then examined again before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the softest BFL is used for our blends, delicate enough for the most sensitive skins.
