Mid-tone red hand-dyed Bluefaced Leicester / Masham blend yarn
A very cosy worsted singles blend of 75% Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) and 25% Masham.
Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is a British longwool, with a rich lustre that yields very bright and rich colours. It has a very glossy, smooth look with kind of a slick handle, and yet still hard-wearing, crisp and springy. Each 100 gram skein of Elmet Worsted is approximately 200 metres of yarn.
It’s not superwash treated, so it needs a hand-wash with gentle detergent in tepid to warm water in order to prevent felting and to keep the colours looking their best.
The yarn has been hand-dyed (kettle) in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home, but no pets have had access to the fibre. Please be aware that, while I make every attempt to provide you with accurate photographs, the colours in them may vary from monitor to monitor.
