Blue-Faced Leicester (BFL) wool is a favourite of mine because you get shine, strength and durability from its long staples yet a surprisingly soft feel which makes this yarn very adaptive. Tussah silk is always a nice addition because of its luxury, strength and shine. A very versatile skein, this yarn would be amazing for a special project for yourself or someone else. This blend is suitable for many things from shawls to hats and cowls and everything in between. Both fibres provide exceptional warmth. Lots of gorgeous colours in this skein. It will go with anything.
Items made from this yarn should be handwashed. A great product for this is SOAK which you can also find in my shop. I also use it to set the twist in all my skeins.
