Milburn 4ply™ British Bluefaced Leicester/Silk in Damson; 500g pack

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Damson, which is a rich and sophisticated, muted purple. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

Damson can be used as a close alternative for hand-dyed colourways Salvia, Buddleja, Damson.

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. For project inspiration, check out the Milburn 4ply 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.
