This special range is based on a blend of British breeds white wool from Blacker's selected supplier farms, combined 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. The 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.
Blacker starts with the natural creamy white and then add heathered grey or fawn using mainly Hebridean or Black Welsh Mountain fleece for the gray or Manx fleece for the fawn. Then they dye the three resulting natural shades in subtle colours, which will all tone with each other.
The lofty woollen spun yarns are designed to give you a classic, traditional knitting experience, in natural and attractive dyed colors, also available in DK. Chunky is only available in natural shades at present.
