This special range is based on British breeds white wool from selected supplier farms, then blended with 30% Blue-faced Leicester from a group of farms in North Wales. The added Blue-faced Leicester wool softens this yarn to make comfortable, light and warm garments or will felt well for accessories. Blacker Yarns' Classic British yarns are good for all types of projects and are priced to give value for money and provide an economic alternative to our rarer, special and luxury yarn ranges.
They start with the natural creamy white and then add heathered grey or fawn using mainly Hebridean or Manx fleece. Then they dye the three resulting natural shades in subtle colours, which will all tone with each other (ask me if you are looking for a specific color that is not in stock).
As a guideline: for woollen spun DK, on 4mm/US 6, UK 8 needles, you will get around 20 sts and 25 rows to a 10cm/4" square. Don't forget to check out our selection of Hiya Hiya Sharps and KnitPro Zings!
