Boadicea is a fabulous new fingering-weight yarn composed of 80% British superwash BFL wool and 20% rayon of bamboo. BFL and bamboo rayon are a match made in fiber heaven: bamboo tends to be silky and drapey, but the BFL will give it a lot of body and bounce. It has a really nice soft hand with a little halo from the BFL. Bamboo rayon doesn't take color at the same rate as the wool, so this will have a sophisticated tweedy look when knitted up. This is a great all-purpose yarn – socks, fine-gauge sweaters, shawls, etc. would all do well in Boadicea!
Boadicea is hand-dyed with professional low-environmental-impact acid dyes for your crafting enjoyment. For maximum garment life, please hand-wash your finished items in cool water and dry flat.

Kelpie Fibers is a non-smoking, pet-friendly in-home business. Fibers and yarns are stored in plastic tubs and I do my best to keep the cats and dog away from them, but if you are severely allergic, please take appropriate precautions.
