McIntosh FABULOUS Bluefaced Leicester & Mulberry Silk DK Yarn

The most FABULOUS hand-dyed award-winning British wool spun together with grade A mulberry silk. This wool is simply FABULOUS: each skein is lovingly hand-dyed in the UK and is accredited as a British Wool Blend by British Wool.

Bluefaced Leicester is a British rare breed sheep with a longer staple fibre length than other yarns. It gives stunning stitch definition and is beautiful to both knit with and to wear. Strength and natural shine are derived from the silk.

The yarn band is beautifully tactile with a biodegradable laminate and contains a sew-on label with care instructions. Due to the nature of hand-dying, each DK skein is as unique as you are.
