80% superwash BFL / 20% nylon
Approximately 425 yards per 115 gram skein
Featuring Bluefaced Leicester wool, Leo is a lofty fingering weight yarn ideal for strong and warm socks, sweaters, mitts, and other projects that call for a formidable yet cozy fibre. Owing to its long fibre staple length, BFL is known for its strength, sheen, and gentle halo. It is particularly well-suited for colour work projects because of its textured structure that holds stitches together well.
Hand-dyed with professional wash-fast acid dyes in my cat-friendly home studio. I take great care to set dye colours and then rinse yarns until no dye bleeds, however there may be some colour in your water at first wash due to differences in water properties. Please be aware that photo colours vary slightly from screen to screen.
If your yarn creation requires more than one skein of the same yarn, it is very important to alternate skeins every row to blend; the beauty of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, even when dyed in the same batch.
Hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry for best longevity.
