This is a stunning blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and Masham wools with sustainable banana fibre. BFL and Masham go together like peaches and cream – they both have a relatively long staple and crimp. The beautiful textures of both wools works well together, with the BFL softening the slightly coarser Masham. The banana fibre is a sustainabe, environmentally friendly cellulose fibre that is a little like a cross between linen and silk. It’s light, smooth and drafts easily, but has the lovely slightly papery feel of linen. Soft enough to be worn next to the skin, this is a real gem of a blend, perfect for socks, mitts, hats and sweaters.
This is a gorgeous, summery mix of bright lime and pink, with a good dose of rich plum to hold it all together. It’s fun, it’s flowery, it’s joyful. Even if you’re not on the way to San Francisco, this will make you want to put some flowers in your hair.
