£18.00

British Bluefaced Leicester

Colourway: Seafoam – lightest, slighty grey periwinkle

*This colour would pair beautifully with natural Hythe kid silk Snow or Shadow for a deeper heathered effect.

Northiam is a smooth, worsted-spun yarn from the finest Bluefaced Leicester sourced, scoured, spun and dyed at a British mill. Velvety against bare skin this long, semi-lustrous fibre has a natural drape, holding a block beautifully.

The softest non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester you will ever feel, Northiam is low pilling with a dry, slightly crisp handle. Its long-staple fibres are excellent for both durable items and delicate lace. Spun with a rounded ply it has excellent stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.
