Milburn 4ply™ British Bluefaced Leicester/Silk in Rain; 50g ball

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. 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.
