This blend of Bluefaced Leicester, kid mohair and silk is superlatively soft and shiny, and the yarn will have a gentle halo when spun. How it is spun, whether it’s and airy or fluffy woollen spin or a smooth worsted spin, will define the amount of halo. The silk adds strength, sheen and smoothness and the BFL gives loft and elasticity. This blend is a real delight to spin, and the resulting yarn is soft and warm, with lots of drape and texture.
The blend is 50% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% kid mohair and 25% silk.
Colours & inspiration
The sea has so many colours but this one is the one I’d want to swim in – rich turquoise with an inviting, deeper blue tint. Imagine – a tropical beach, a cocktail, soft, white sand and a sea this colour, so warm you could bathe in it. The Andaman Sea exists so in my memory of it. Bliss.
