This is our new plastic-free sock base. 100% British Bluefaced Leicester spun by Laxtons in Yorkshire in their beautiful mill. The yarn is incredibly soft with the good tight twist you need to make socks last. We trialled different sock bases but this one stood up best to the beating that we gave it. Soft enough to wear as a hat or scarf this is a really excellent hard wearing yarn.
Please wash this 100% wool yarn at 30 degrees, dry flat and don't lob it in the tumble drier or you will be sorry.
Approximately 100g gives 385 metres/421 yards of British hand dyed delight.
Try between 2.25mm and 3mm depending on your tension.
