Bowland 4ply (was BFL Sock) is a good all-round yarn, which is soft (it fluffs out more after washing), pretty hard wearing, has a beautiful gentle sheen, and is fine and drapey. This makes it great for a really wide range of projects, including accessories and garments. I find it fine for socks, but being a pure fine wool, it may not be hard wearing enough for you, so please bear that in mind.

Stats:

2.25 - 4mm needles (US 1 - 6)
2 - 4.5mm hook

Machine washable on a gentle cycle (handwash if possible)
Lay flat to dry

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it’s a one-skein project).
