Hand dyed 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester 4ply sock yarn in colourway Algae.
BFL Sock is a good all-round yarn, which is soft (it fluffs out more after washing), pretty hard wearing, has a beautiful gentle sheen, and is fine and drapey. This makes it great for a really wide range of projects, including accessories and garments. I find it fine for socks, but being a pure fine wool, it may not be hard-wearing enough for you, so please bear that in mind.
- Fibre: 100% Bluefaces Leicester wool, superwash, hand dyed.
- One skein: 400m / 100 grams
- 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!) Lay flat to dry, don't put 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).
