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.
This is a gloriously complex colourway – the soft grey belies hidden depths of lilac and smokey blue that makes the most of the lustre and texture of this fibre.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
