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

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Compost - a soft neutral brown which is lovely on its own but also shows off other colours beautifully too.

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.
