It’s been quite a while since we’ve stocked a laceweight yarn. There isn’t a lot of choice when it comes to bases made from wool grown, processed and spun in the UK.
I’m delighted that we’ve found a blend which is 50% British Bluefaced Leicester and 50% tussah silk. The gleam and shine on this yarn is glorious, and it has a lovely drape.
There are 700 meters in each 100 gram skein and each skein is £20 (16.66 ex VAT)
I’m already thinking about a simple garter stitch shawl – I reckon a lot of patterns which call for 4ply would work well and you’d just have a little more drape.
There are close up photos of each colour too, so it’s easy to see what you are buying.
