Milburn DK™ British Bluefaced Leicester/Silk in Natural; 500g pack

PLEASE NOTE: Packs are temporarily out of stock with more in production. We hope to have this item back in stock by the end of May.


Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Natural, the natural (and quite yellowy) cream of the fleece. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

This yarn is so light to wear, and yet lovely and warm and hardwearing, with gorgeous, rich depth of colour and a beautiful sheen from the silk. It's great for a really wide range of projects, and being machine washable makes it a bit more practical. For project inspiration, check out the Milburn DK™ projects gallery on Ravelry HERE.

We recommend that if you are planning to use a dark colour with a pale colour to make a swatch with them both and wash it to make sure no colour contamination occurs before starting your project. Hot water in particular can make colours run; if in doubt use cool water and no soap/detergent.
