British grown and British made! Our BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) yarn is grown on the British Isles and spun in the British Yorkshire Dales, promising a delightful tactile knitting experience. BFL yarn is often compared with merino – BFL being stronger and holding its shape much better. Soft and bouncy to the touch, it is a favourite among knitters. With a very low CO2 footprint and naturally dyed in Ireland – how could it get better?
In a nutshell for 1 skein:
100% Bluefaced Leicester yarn
225m/ 246 yards

How we made these colours:
Indigo* - herbaceous plant ( you might get a bit of blue on your hands while
Knitting - that is easily washed of with soap and even healthy!)
Vegan note: please be aware that we use Lac and Cochineal dyes as well, which would be of animal origin ~ Cochineal** - small louse; Lac*** - the casing made by beetles to hatch and protect their eggs.
