75% superwash Bluefaced Leicester 25% nylon sock yarn (4 ply) (100g)


11 in stock (can be backordered)


This great value yarn is excellent for socks but also well suited to shawls, wraps and other fine garments. A lovely delicate, yet deceptively strong yarn.

Bluefaced Leicester wool has a lovely long-staple which makes the yarn smooth, strong and slightly lustrous. With a little added nylon for extra strength.

Superwash too for easy care.

Dyes beautifully with our fibre reactive, acid or natural dyes.

We suggest needle sizes: 2.5mm-3.25mm
