Fig Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) Double Take Set
This is a pair of 50g complimenting hand dyed Dorset Horn wool combed tops. One 50g braid is a gradient colorway; the other 50g braid has a color sequence.
BFL wool is a long and lustrous soft white wool. The yarn spun from this wool has a lovely sheen and can have a beautiful drape. It is well suited for spinning into yarn for knitting/crocheting next to skin items, even socks!
Fiber width: ranges from 24-28 microns. Staple length: 12cm-16cm.
100% Blue Faced Leicester wool. Total weight approximately 100g.
No colorways are exactly the same... even in the same hand dyed batch! It is what makes them special.
Colors may appear differently on different fibres/fibre blends. Different settings on digital devices may also show colors differently on your screen.
Hand wash completed projects in cold water with a gentle detergent if needed. Lay flat and/or shape to dry.
The yarn bases I use are sourced from mills with best farming practices in Italy and South America, and are mulesing free.
