Pot Pourri – BFL/Silk/Linen

£15.00

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

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 papery 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

Colours and Inspiration

This colourway is a gorgeous, rich mix of deep pink, gold and dark olive.  It’s a classy, floral mix that has beautiful pops of colour, like a bowl of light, fragrant pot pourri.
