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

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Dusk - a soft greyish purple which works well with lots of other colours. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately!

Dusk can be used as an alternative for hand-dyed colourways Storm and Dusk.

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.
