Kissing Season – BFL/Silk/Linen

£12.00

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

A beautiful blend of BFL, silk and linen that spins up into a soft, drapey yarn with a lovely lightness.

Colour & Inspiration

It’s said that when gorse is out of bloom, kissing is out of season. The three species of gorse between them stay in bloom most of the year, so luckily, kissing is in fashion all of the time. This is a gorgeous mix of violet, gold and sea green, which reminds me of walking on sea cliffs among the heather and gorse.

Description

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.
