Brine Dyeworks - BFL Sport/DK

$2500
: Ben Dives

100% untreated Blue Faced Leicester wool; 3-Ply; 280yds/115g; heavy sport weight/ light DK

Sport weight and DK can generally be used interchangeably in patterns. Works up beautifully for sweaters, shawls, etc. Blue Faced Leicester fleece has a natural butter yellow color to it, so colorways dyed on this base will have a warm undertone. BFL  has a beautiful, inherent sheen to it. Untreated (non-superwash treated) yarn dyes up with more of a "water-colour effect"; speckles are less crisp, and colorways are more blended, and slightly less vibrant. As a general rule, BFL is more resistant to pilling than Merino wool, and knits up into a fabric with more drape and strength than Merino. 

Wool is imported from the U.K. and spun in Canada.
