All Oxford Kitchen Yarn is hand dyed in a tiny kitchen in Oxford by me, using the highest quality light and colour fast acid dyes. Each skein is unique and cannot be reproduced exactly. If using for a project that requires more than one skein, you can alternate rows with two skeins to even out any differences in the skein's colour structure.
I support British sheep farmers and dye British yarns. British Bluefaced Leicester is a soft, stable, versatile yarn, with great stitch definition, that is suitable for a items both close to the skin or for layering over other fabrics.
For best results, I recommend washing your knitting or crochet with a gentle yarn wash in cool water, and drying flat.
