Bluefaced Leicester meets silk and cashmere - the result is a robust yarn with a fine shimmer and super-soft texture. The ideal blend for shawls, sweaters and so on. Since it's such a fluffy dream, I recommend handwashing your projects.
When knitting especially the darker colourways some colour residue might stick to your hands. This is neither toxic nor while it affect the yarn, but it can be avoided by washing the skeins with a splash of vinegar prior to knitting. This is also recommended when knitting with different colourways to prevent bleeding.
