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.
This is a rich and cheerful colourway, as comforting as a sweet, succulent cherry pie. It’s highly variegated, running from palest pink to deep berry and the mohair and silk make it shine as if it has sparkles in it. Absolutely gorgeous.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
