BFL Sock


Hand dyed 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester 4ply sock yarn in colourway Algae.

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


  • Fibre: 100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool
  • One skein: 400m / 100 gram
  • Weight: Fingering
  • Tension: 28 sts per 10cm
  • Needles: 2.5 - 4mm
  • Washing: You may wash this yarn in the washing machine, on a wool cycle. (Although hand washing is always better!) Dry flat, not in the dryer.

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