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.
