Heather – BFL/Silk/Mohair

£12.00

Colour & Inspiration

The blush of heather on the hillsides and moors of the British Isles is a very special thing. This colour always takes me where the air is fresh and clean and the wildness of the open country is close at hand.

Fibres

50% Bluefaced Leicester/25% kid mohair/25% silk.

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.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
