Kettle Yarn Co. Northiam DK
Product Description: 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 long-staple fibres that 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.
Kettle Yarn Co. only use supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester which means that the fibre is picked through at twice the rate that normal wools are handled and then examined again before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the softest BFL is used for their blends, delicate enough for the most sensitive skins.
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Northiam DK is a squishy, soft, fluffy delight! It's ridiculously softer than most BFL yarns, and works up beautifully. It's perfect for all sorts of gorgeous projects. Please note that these are 50g skeins, and plan accordingly!
