Made from 55% Bluefaced Leicester and 45% Silk with a generous 800m per 100g, this yarn is hand dyed in shimmering complimentary tones, making it perfect for giving special lace projects a ??_wow??_ factor. The combination of Bluefaced Leicester wool gives the yarn structure while the silk provides a beautiful sheen and makes the colours glow wonderfully. The blend of both fibres makes the yarn strong enough to be blocked well and show off lace patterns to their best advantage.
