Item details

Buoy Fingering is a small batch yarn that started with a custom fiber blend that we fell in love with. Buoy is a blend of three British breeds, including the rare breed Manx Loaghtan. We use a blend of 37.5% Blue Faced Leicester wool, 37.5% Shetland wool and 25% Manx Loaghtan wool to bring together the best attributes of each breed into a beautifully lofty yarn that is perfect for sweaters, hats and mittens - anything that needs a little bit of strength, but still lofty and wearable. Buoy Fingering is dyed in the wool prior to spinning - this results in a beautiful heathered yarn.

Breakwater is a deep espresso brown.

Buoy Fingering is a 2 ply, worsted spun fingering weight yarn. 400 yards per skein

Gauge: 27-32 stitches per 4 inches

Needle: US 1-3, 2.25 – 3.25 mm

Hook: US B-E4 , 2.24 – 3.5 mm

Blue Face Leicester is a British breed that is well known for being the finest of the medium wools, offering softness and luster.

Shetland wool brings loft and air into the blend and the characteristics we expect from a classic wool.

Manx Loaghtan is a rare breed that combines tight crimp with a longer staple length and brings a bounce to the yarn.
