New Shiny Yarn – the details

Our new yarn is a blend of 75% super wash BFL and 25% mohair . While we always recommend hand washing to preserve the good looks of your knits for as long as possible this yarn base will survive a trip through the washing machine on a 30 degree wool wash without felting.

This yarn comes in 100 gram skeins and each skein is 400 meters long – perfect for socks or a small shawl.

The yarn is spun for us by Laxtons in West Yorkshire, and both fibers are sourced and processed in the UK.

I’ll be swatching over the next few days so I can suggest gauge guidelines – and I need to get going on a pair of socks for Bobbie.
