This Bluefaced Leicester fibre is very special indeed. Sourced from specific Devon based flocks, it’s double sorted and processed by John Arbon Textiles. It’s really spectacular fibre – supremely soft with a beautiful hand, it really is a must.
The legend goes that Merlin was imprisoned in a cave to sleep out his eternal days by his lover, Nimue (also known as Viviane, or the Lady of the Lake). These colours make me think of that sleep, deep under stone and forest, peaceful and dreamfilled. It’s a gorgeous blend of steely blue-grey, pale stone, turquoise and flashes of olive and will spin into a really stunning yarn.
Each braid weighs 100g.
