A new yarn added to the collection, a rustic non super wash British yarn A beautiful indigo fade set, containing 5 skeins of 50% Blue Faced Leicester / 50% Masham (100gram - 450 meter per skein) total 2250 meter.
It is a set of 5 ombre shades dyed by using acid dye in the color indigo.
It is a blend of 2 old English sheep breeds, the Blue faced Leicester and the Masham sheep.
The BFL sheep gives wool with nice soft properties, actually comparable to the Merino sheep. The Masham wool is wonderful soft, shiny and has a long staple length.
This wool is suitable for lots of projects such as scarves or clothing.
Hand wash using a wool detergent ideally below 30⁰C, avoid wringing and twisting. Dry flat, do not sun dry, spin or tumble dry. Because the yarn is hand-dyed there is a possibility that it will bleed, advise it to wash separately. I have included several pictures, to try and give a good idea of the colour, but I cannot guarantee that it will look exactly the same on your screen as it does on mine!
