Bowland 4ply in Linen (Dyelot 260418)

Hand dyed 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester 4ply sock yarn in colourway Linen - a very subtle, barely-there, pearly cream.

Bowland 4ply (formerly known as BFL Sock) is a good all-round yarn, which is soft (it fluffs out more after washing), pretty hard wearing, has a beautiful gentle sheen, and is fine and drapey. This makes it great for a really wide range of projects, including accessories and garments. I find it fine for socks, but being a pure fine wool, it may not be hardwearing enough for you, so please bear that in mind.

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately or wash a swatch before using dark and light colours together.

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it's a one-skein project).
