NV - The Sparkly Bluefaced Baron Sock - Bluefaced Leicester & Firestar Nylon

The Sparkly Bluefaced Baron Sock 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.

The nylon is sparkly and is blended into the wool so that it is not scratchy (like stellina can be to some people). This means the bling is more subtle.
