Yes!!! After 3 years of waiting to bring this exquisite yarn from Hastings, UK, we finally have it. We hope you love it as much as we do!
ISLINGTON Fingering is a Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester and Silk blend. Below is Linda’s, the dyer behind Kettle Yarn Co., description.
As soft as merino, *100% British superwash Bluefaced Leicester tempers the silk’s slipperiness while adding strength and elasticity. The high percentage of BFL also makes items hardwearing, very low pilling and long lasting. The addition of 45% silk adds a sophisticated sheen and drape with crispness and uniformity for stunning lace knitting. With a generous 437 yds per skien, there is enough in one skein for a precious shawl or smaller accessory.
As a side note, we also received orders of Farmer’s Daughter and Julie Asselin!
See you soon!
