Get it or regret it... Clearance section contains a selection of older stock that is unlikely to be relisted when it expires at the end of its listing cycle. Yarn in this section is at least 40% off original price, and many items at over 50% off!

Packaging has changed - most of my mailing bags are now paper. Tissue paper and paper receipts are available on request.

Trying to Snow - Superwash Bluefaced Leicester 4 ply yarn

Trying to Snow - Superwash Bluefaced Leicester 4 ply yarn
£16.00 2 Available
Love this


The first flakes of snow on bare branches. In mottled shades of rust, dark green, brown, orange and off-white (undyed), this colourway looks like a relation of my occasionally repeating colourway 'Lochside' despite being dyed with a different selection of dye colours. This Bluefaced Leicester superwash yarn is soft with a very slight lustre. There are two skeins available (price shown is for one), and whilst they were dyed together the random dyeing style means they have significant differents in colour distribution and blending. One skein (first photo and front of third photo) is generally darker with more brown shades, whereas the other skein (second photo and rear of third photo) has more off-white sections. If you have a preference, please state when ordering or I will choose a skein at random. Photos taken and edited in bright but wintery natural light.
