Item details

Ideal for socks this colourway is a browney blue with blue highlights. It was dyed using indigo extract and natural dyes extracted from dried plant material.

This yarn consists of 80/% Bluefaced Leicester Wool and 20% Nylon and is spun with a high twist. This makes it very hardwearing so is suitable for items like socks that need a more robust yarn than our Heather Sock. Thanks to its BFL content the yarn is still next-to-skin soft and has a nice lustre that coupled with its high twist gives great stitch definition so is equally suitable for shawl or scarf knitting.

Skein weighing 100g, approx length 365m (405yards).

Gentle hand washing recommended, for full care details and information on us and our yarns please visit our website

Additional policies

Important Information.
We share our house with a cat and while we keep her away from the yarn and fibre I strongly recommend that you don’t buy anything from me if you, or the person you are buying it for, has a strong cat allergy.
As with all hand dyed yarn, I recommend buying as much as you need to complete a project, as it is impossible to guarantee a colour match from different dye pots. To minimise any differences when knitting, I also advise if using more than one skein to alternate the skeins every few rows.
We make every effort to accurately represent the colours of our yarn and fibre. All shop photos are taken outside in natural light to obtain as realistic a representation of the colours as possible and then photos compared to the actual yarns to ensure they are a true match. However due to differences in monitors and monitor settings the colours may appear differently on your computer. Therefore please read the colour descriptions for our yarns/fibre and compare with the photos to obtain a good idea of the actual colours. Also please be aware that some colours may appear differently under artificial light.
