British Blue is a supremely soft, subtly sheeny and deliciously sumptuous DK weight wool. It is made from the wool of the Bluefaced Leicester which is Britain’s most luxurious fiber. With its fine, dense yet lightweight fleece, due to the nature of its tightly purled wool, the noble Bluefaced Leicester produces some of the finest commercial demi-lustre wool in the world. Often considered the ‘cashmere of British wools’, it is naturally our fiber of choice for creating the best of British wool yarns. Wool is naturally soft, comfortable and sustainable, making it the ultimate fiber for the hand knitter.
