Mambo No.5 (Throwback Remix) - The Bluefaced Baron Fingering - Bluefaced Leicester

4 items left


The Bluefaced Baron Fingering is a gorgeously soft and lustrous fingering weight 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.

Although this yarn does not contain nylon, the high twist construction and long staple length of the wool makes this yarn a contender for non-nylon socks.

Notes about hand dyed yarn
