SW British Bluefaced Leicester Silk

KettleYarnCo

{See photos tagged #islingtonyarn on Instagram}

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 silk combines sophisticated sheen and luxurious handle with crispness and uniformity for stunning stitch definition.
