Star Fruit – BFL/Silk/Linen


Colour and Inspiration

60% British Bluefaced Leicester/20% silk/20% linen

A beautiful blend of fibres that will spin up into a beautifully textured yarn with a lovely lightness. The colours capture the beautiful olive green and the tinge of plum that appears on the soft, shiny skin of starfruit.






This blend is a textured mix of Bluefaced Leicester, silk and linen.  The fibres are well blended to ensure ease of drafting and even distribution of fibres.  The BFL and silk work beautifully together, giving the soft BFL sheen and drape, and the linen adds an interesting, almost paper texture to the fibre.  When spinning, the linen can feel rather stiff, but in the final yarn it adds a delicious lightness which gets softer and softer with use.  This fibre is perfect for knitting drapey garments, such as summery t-shirts, light scarves and warm-weather cardigans, but it works well for cold weather items too.
