BFL and Wensleydale mix
Price per 100g
A FibreHut blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester!
BRIT CLASSIC is a classic fusion of two of the most popular and well known British wools - 50% natural white Wensleydale and 50% natural white Bluefaced Leicester.
The Bluefaced Leicester lends softness and loft; the Wensleydale provides length and lustre and the resulting fibre is delightfully soft and smooth. It's an easy and pleasureable spin enabling you to achieve a soft, fine and luxurious yarn with excellent drape – perfect for shawls, scarves and other elegant knitwear.
Brit Classic has the creamiest hue of all of our fusion range which is retained when dyed allowing for softer tones if desired. If you like to hand spin yarns to knit or crochet shawls, it really doesn't get much better than this!
- 100g - mittens, socks, hat
- 300g - cushion cover, shawl, long scarf
- 600g - baby blanket, cardigan, ladies sweater
Always buy enough fibre to finish your project in one go to avoid slight shade variations from batch to batch (this is in the nature of natural wool). If colour matching is important to you get a free sample first.
100g of fibre spins 100g of yarn the yardage of which depends on how finely you spin. The weight chart above is a helpful guide but will depend on the size and tension of the final garment.
If the fibre is suitable for felting you'll find that 100 grams will compress down to a grapefruit sized solid 3D shape (approximately). If you only need smaller amounts try our mini selection packs.
Core wool is a cost effective way to quickly build up 3D shapes before topping off. Another popular product is pre-felt which is ready for further needle felting, or wet felting, or to be used as a base for your project.
