Love Lies Bleeding – BFL/Silk/Linen

(1 customer review)


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

A beautiful blend of BFL, silk and linen that will spin up into a soft, drapey yarn with a lovely lightness. It is hand dyed a rich red with violet highlights, and seductive slivers of the natural pale biscuit colour showing through.


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.

    I just finished making a hat for my sister with this and I absolutely love it! It spun up so beautifully and i totally fell in love with it from the begin, it was so hard to let it go when it was time to send it to her but I’m sure she will love it just as much! I’m so glad I have some fiber left to use for another project.
