BREXSHIT! - The Bluefaced Baron DK - Bluefaced Leicester


The bestest thing we've ever done.
I want to send you something in the post. I mean, don't I always?
Actually, no. Scratch that.
I want to send you the BESTEST ever thing we've ever dyed at Countess Ablaze, in the post.
And just what is that?
Well it was a complete fkn mistake by the Countess herself. Which is me; I don't know why I'm referring to myself in the third person.

BREXSHIT has been dyed to order, right? Well, let's take a guess at which nobhead ORDERED THE WRONG YARN AND THEN DYED IT AND REALISED AFTERWARDS AS WE'RE ABOUT TO PACK IT?

Yes, that will be me.

Sometimes the greatest things are our greatest mistakes. And this is one of mine.

If you want Grande Merino DK or Lady Persephone Sock yarn for your BREXSHIT!, you can still pre-order those until 30th April 2019, or when Theresa May quits her job as Prime Minister - whichever comes first.

But if you fancy it ready to ship on The Bluefaced Baron DK (superwash Bluefaced Leicester), you can grab a skein or ten now.

The Bluefaced Baron DK is a gorgeously soft and lustrous yarn with the added bonus of being machine washable for easy care of your handcrafted item.

Bluefaced Leicester is strong and sturdy and whilst most people find it to be next-to-skin soft, it's not quite as soft as merino but it does soften, bloom and reveal great drape once it has been washed and blocked.

 

Country of Origin British wool spun in Peru
Fibre Composition 100%  Bluefaced Leicester wool
Yarn Weight DK weight
Skein Weight 100 grams / 3.5 oz
Length 225 metres / 240 yards
Needle Size 3.5 mm - 4mm
Notes about hand dyed yarn

Yarns are unique and there will be small differences between skeins, even if dyed in the same batch.

Washing instructions

Machine washable at 30 degrees but ideally wash in cool water and lie flat to dry.
