Blacker Classic British 4-Ply
Product Description: This range of yarns is made from British breeds white wool from Blacker Yarns' supplier farms, blended with 30% Blue-faced Leicester from a group of farms in North Wales. The added Blue-faced Leicester wool softens this yarn to make comfortable, light and warm garments. It will also felt well for accessories.
Classic British starts with the natural creamy white and then adds heathered grey or fawn using mainly Hebridean or Manx fleece. Blacker Yarns then dyes the three resulting natural shades in subtle colours, which will all tone with each other. The lofty woollen spun yarns are designed to give you a classic, traditional knitting experience, in natural and attractive dyed colours.
Please Note: We are no longer selling Blacker Yarns, as they are scaling back stores in the US to meet their production capabilities. All stock is 25% off until it's gone.
Fairlight Fibers Note: The hand on this yarn is natural and crisp, which makes it perfect for projects that require sharp contrast in the stitches, such as cables. It is not necessarily next-to-the-skin soft, depending on your preference, though it softens with a quick rinse in fabric softener once the project is finished. It could be accurately described as a "rustic," traditional yarn. The colors are soft and have a beautiful depth.
