Citadel 50 - Creature from the Open Ocean

Regular price £8

Citadel 50 is a 4 ply sock yarn made from 100% British Blue Faced Leicester that has been superwash treated and comes in handy 50g skeins. Blue Faced Leicester fibres are strong which makes it an excellent choice for socks, especially if you are looking for nylon free yarn.  The large scales on the core of the fibre give BFL its silk like lustre.  Despite the large scales, BFL is a soft fibre and most are able to wear it next to their skin which makes this yarn suitable for a whole range of projects!  The smaller 50g skein makes these ideal for hats, mittens and colourwork projects.

Please be aware that these are hand dyed yarns and as such colour may vary slightly from batch to batch.
