This lustrous yarn is 55% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 45% silk for a smooth hand and a subtly shiny appearance.
The inspiration for this colorway are the lilacs surrounding my fiber shed on our farm. French lilacs have clusters ranging from Violet to lavender with silvery bark on the branches.
874 y per 100 gm skein.
Recommended care: hand wash and lay flat to dry.
I do small batch dyeing, usually 10 or less skeins at a time in my dedicated dye studio. I use professional quality dyes and pre-wash the yarn before it is listed for sale.
My studio is a smoke free and pet friendly environment.
Bold or extra dark hues and certain reds and yellows may have slight bleeding for the first few washes.
The accuracy of the color in the photographs is influenced by my camera and your monitor.
