Collection: BFL Worsted

This yarn base was used for my collaboration with Erin Clayton of Erineen Designs for her Ballyglass Shawl. This pattern is a relaxing and rhythmic project, with two sizes to choose from: a 3 skein version and a 4 skein version. Check out the pattern here on Ravelry or here on Payhip.

100% untreated Blue Faced Leicester wool; 4-Ply; 210yds/115g; worsted weight (yarn weight 4)

Works up beautifully for sweaters, shawls, etc. Blue Faced Leicester fleece has a natural butter yellow color to it, so colorways dyed on this base will have a warm undertone. BFL  has a beautiful, inherent sheen to it. Untreated (non-superwash treated) yarn dyes up with more of a "water-colour effect"; speckles are less crisp, and colorways are more blended, and slightly less vibrant. As a general rule, BFL is more resistant to pilling than Merino wool, and knits up into a fabric with more drape and strength than Merino. 

Wool is imported from the U.K. and spun in Canada.
