Rare Jewel (Worsted)
Our Worsted Weight Yarns are available in 100% British Superwash Bluefaced Leicester Lustre Wool, The creamy BFL yarns are naturally soft but they are also good for items that are subject to wear such as socks, mittens, sweaters and hats. They drape well without heaviness due to the natural crimp of the fibre and, with long staple fibres, these yarns are less prone to pilling than many wools. The lustre of the wool emphasizes the shape of stitches so is ideal for textured stitches and cables. At 25-26 microns, the fibres are less fine than merino but the BFL fibres have large, smooth scales on their surface so they feel smoother and have a characteristic pearly sheen to them.
