Our Blue Faced Leicester and Masham yarn is one of my favourite yarn bases. I love the combination of softness and bounce. Laxtons (the mill who spin this wonderful stuff) have recently added ombre packs which show off 5 natural shades of wool.
The yarn is slightly finer than the 4ply BFL and Masham we’ve had before with 450 meters to each 100 gram skeins rather than 400. There’s so much bounce and loft in this yarn that the slight change feels like a lovely thing, and makes the yarn even better for garments and shawls.
We’re going to start by selling this yarn is packs of five 100 gram skeins – so 500 grams and 1850 meters in total. That’s a sweater or an epic shawl.
The top photo shows the undyed skeins (and we’ll be selling these), then the photos underneath are one of the undyed sets post dye bath.
These sets will be in the shop at 1900 on Thursday 24th May.
