$ 35.00

 BFL Silk Lace contains 50% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester wool and 50% Tussah silk in a decadent 2 ply laceweight yarn with 770 yards in each 100 g skein.

We've taken this laceweight yarn  and taken it for a swim in our dyepots to create beautiful speckled gradients on top of gorgeous solid shades.

The knitted piece in the listing photo illustrates the effect of the dyeing process - a one way speckled gradient.

Jacaranda is a vibrant violet with blue undertones and Argent is a pale silver grey.

Care: Handwash cold.  Lay flat to dry.  

We try our best to accurately portray the color of our hand-dyed yarn, but please be aware that colors may differ according to your monitor.

Polwarth sheep were bred in the 1880s as a dual purpose breed that was hardier than Merinos, but retained the fine wool of Merinos.  They are a cross of 1/4 Lincoln (a longwool sheep) and 3/4 Merino, which results in a fine wool with a longer staple length, increased luster and durability.  Polwarth is well loved in the handspinning community, and it's a joy to bring a Polwarth specific yarn into our selection of hand dyed yarns.  

Iris is a tonal deep navy blue with sapphire highlights.

Each 100g (3.5 oz) skein of Polwarth DK contains 300 yards of a lovely 3 ply yarn.  Knits up at 6 stitches to the inch (it can substitute for many sportweight yarns) with a US 4-6 (3.0 - 4.0 mm).  

Care: Handwash cold.  Lay flat to dry.

All efforts are made to accurately depict the colors of the hand dyed yarn.  Colors will vary from dyelot to dyelot, so please purchase enough to complete your intended project in a single batch.  Alternate skeins for best results.
