Milburn 4ply™ BFL/Silk in Rain (Dyelot 2022-A)

Note: This colourway has not been discontinued. If a newer batch is not currently available, it will be in the near future.

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Rain, which is a soft blueish silver. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

Rain can be used as a close alternative for hand-dyed colourways Silver Birch and Echinops.

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.

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: 2022-A

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.

For larger quantities, select the 500g pack from the dropdown menu. Yarn packs come at a discounted price compared with purchasing the balls individually.
