100% Superwash BFL.
400m per 100g skein. Also sold in 150 g., 600 m skeins. Please adjust meter length on the individual stash page. This is the same yarn, just in a larger skein size.

Made from 100% Bluefaced Leicester, the long staple of this fibre makes for a hardwearing yarn that gives your knitted projects a subtle sheen and perfect stitch definition.

The brightness and softness is due to the lack of scales on the surface of the fibre compared to other wools and the breed is completely unique to the British Isles.

Perfectly suited when both softness and strength are required.

Spartan is a great all-rounder. The 4ply is equally suitable for shawls as it is for mittens and the Sport weight is perfect for those quick knits or snuggly hats.
