Winter Garden – 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

This colourway is a gorgeous, subtle blend of pale stone, flecked with shades of tobacco and dry rose. It makes me think of a still winter garden, biding its time through the cold until the warm spring coaxes the brighter colours forth again.

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.
