Milburn 4ply™ BFL/Silk in Black Tulip; 500g pack (Dyelot ECY22102020)

TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK: A new batch is in production and we hope to have it back in stock by the end of December.

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Black Tulip, which is a beautiful dark aubergine. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

Black Tulip can be used as an alternative for hand-dyed colourway Black Magic 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.

85% British Bluefaced Leicester, 15% Mulberry Silk
50g balls
200m/218yds
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.

Current dyelots in stock are: ECY22102020

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.
