Custom spun exclusively for ACME Fibres: a luxurious, creamy blend of 80% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool and 20% silk. You won't find this anywhere else!

This high-twist 3-ply yarn would be particularly good for sock knitting. The natural lustre and durability of the BFL combined with the sheen and strength of silk make a soft yet sturdy sock yarn with a subtle glimmer and shine. The long staple length of the BFL also makes your finished object more resistant to pilling.
The natural buttery colour of the unbleached BFL gives this yarn a soft ivory cast. It takes up dye magnificently. 
Light fingering weight, 3/9 nM.  Approximately 390 meters (425 yards) per 115 gram (4 ounce) skein. 

Recommended gauge: about 7 to 9 stitches per inch.

Undyed yarns are stored and sold with the spinning oil still in; give your skeins a bath with a gentle detergent or wool wash to remove it before dyeing, and bring up the full bloom of the yarn.
Quantity Discounts are available on this yarn.
This yarn is made in Canada.

I love this base! It is unusual and distinctive. It takes dye beautifully and has that gorgeous BFL luminescence I love With the little bit of silk it's that much more special.
