Erika Knight British Blue 100
A 100% Pure British Bluefaced Leicester Wool.
Britsh Blue 100 is 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool available in 100g hanks. Supremely soft, subtly sheeny and deliciously sumptuous; the wool of the Bluefaced Leicester is Britain’s most luxurious fibre.
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 Erika’s fibre of choice for creating the best of British wool yarns.
Wool is naturally soft, comfortable and sustainable, making it the ultimate fibre for the hand knitter.
