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.
A very pale, delicate pinky-beige, this gorgeous colour is a balm for the soul. It has a soft, pearly sheen thanks to the silk and mohair. Imagine wearing a kitten-soft scarf or gloves in yarn spun from this fibre. You’d almost want it to be winter all the time.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
