Milburn 4ply™ BFL/Silk in Althaea; 50g ball (Dyelot ECY27062019)

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Althaea, which is a soft, muted, vintage pink. This batch comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

Althaea can be used as an alternative for hand-dyed colourway Rambling Rose.

This yarn is so light to wear, and yet lovely and warm and hardwearing, with gorgeous, rich depth of colour. It's great for a really wide range of projects, and being machine washable makes it potentially a bit more practical, particularly for socks. 

Yarn info:
85% British Bluefaced Leicester, 15% Mulberry Silk
50g balls
2.25-4mm needles
Machine washable on a gentle/wool cycle
Lay flat to dry

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.

We only have these dyelots but our Stockists may have previous dyelots. Find a list of our stockists HERE. There is very little variation in the colour between our mill dyed yarn dyelots, so you should be able to use multiple dyelots in one project. We always fulfill orders from a single dyelot where possible.
