Milburn DK™ British Bluefaced Leicester/Silk in Althaea; 50g ball

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Althaea, which is a soft, muted, vintage pink. This yarn 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 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.

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.
