softest superwash British Bluefaced Leicester
Silk

Well-bred but streetwise, this lightweight blend yarn is versatile and strong while maintaining buttery softness - a sophisticated choice for everyday items, luxurious next to skin wear and precious accessories.

As soft as Merino, the blend’s 100% British superwash Bluefaced Leicester tempers silk’s drape while adding strength and elasticity. The high percentage of BFL makes items hardwearing, very low pilling and long lasting. The addition of 45% silk combines sophisticated sheen and luxurious handle with crispness and uniformity for stunning stitch definition.

This yarn has been vigorously wear tested and holds an amazing ‘2 shaves’ on Kettle Yarn Co.’s Wear Grading Chart - which means it will only pill lightly the first few times worn and will shave completely clean with no damage to fibres!

Handwashing or machine soaking and spinning is recommended.
******************
Purchased from the British Wool Marketing Board, we only use supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester fleece.

‘Supersorting’ is when the fibre is picked through – or cleaned of any unwanted bits - twice as much as normal wools are handled and then examined again before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the very softest BFL is used for our blends.
