BFL Aran Superwash - Set of 10 Skeins
Bluefaced Leicester Aran-SW
100% British Bluefaced Leicester Wool
2 ply yarn
181 yds per 100g skein, sold in kilo packs of 10 skeins
Gauge #8 needles 16sts and 24 rows over 4"
This would work as a warp and weft for weaving.
This yarn is gorgeous, with the toothy texture of Bluefaced Leicester but is plump and soft enough to wear against the skin. The twist makes it full and bouncy providing a good stitch definition for knitting.
I used a #8 needle for the swatch, but you could go down to a #7 for a tighter fabric, the fabric blocks out really well.
This yarn sucks up the dye and looks super nice in the skeins, it’s a pleasure to dye and knit with.
