Sock Blend – Superwash BFL/Nylon Top
80% Superwash Blue-faced Leicester wool / 20% Nylon Not suitable for wet felting!! Very clean combed top. Staple length around 5 to 6 inches. BFL is not as soft as Merino, but has excellent durability in a sock yarn. Spin Off Magazine did a whole sock issue a couple of years ago and BFL was the winner so far as the best choice for spinning your own sock yarn. We have the mill custom-blend this for us, to save you from having to do the tedious job of combining wool and nylon together in a thorough way. This dyes up beautifully, either before or after spinning. The ovory-white colour is also real nice just as it comes. Would also be a good choice for kid's clothing. PRODUCT of CANADA, made from imported fibre.

Sock Blend – Superwash Merino/Nylon Top
80% Superwash Merino wool / 20% Nylon Very clean combed top. Staple length is around 4 inches. Like our BFL/Nylon blend, we have the mill do this up for us because it's an ideal no-brainer blend for spinning sock yarn. Takes dye beautifully, though the natural creamy-white is also lovely. White nylon is a pain to thoroughly blend into white fibre, so we've already had it done for you. Not suitable for wet felting. PRODUCT of CANADA, made from imported fibre.
