All About the Base - The Bluefaced Leicester wool gives this yarn strength, as well as adding to the lustre of the silk. Perfect for shawls, scarves or light garments, this luxurious yarn gives a lovely drape to your fabric and is ideal for those change-of-season items to keep the chill at bay. The high silk content adds to the heat regulating properties, meaning it will keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter!
Care instructions - Even though this is a superwash yarn, it is always recommended to wash your hand-knits by hand to extend the life of your garment or item.
Hand wash gently in cool water with mild soap, and dry flat to maintain the shape.
Note: for darker, more intense colourways, there may be a little dye residue coming out in the first wash - this is normal and shouldn't affect your colours!
