Severn DK

Severn DK

Severn is our blend of BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) and Silk. BFL is a soft wool with longer fibre staple length making for a more durable yarn. Our Severn combines this durability with silk which adds softness and drape.

Severn is our blend of BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) and Silk. A BFL sheep has luxuriously long, silken, Shirley Temple-esque locks to go with its blue Roman nose. This sheep is known for its threadlike, incredibly light wool. Because our yarns are locally spun and hand dyed using all natural dyes, it is recommended that you alternate skeins throughout your project. Be sure to order enough skeins to complete your project as each bag we make is a different dye lot.

Blend:  75% BFL and 25% Silk

Weight/Yardage:  Approx. 4 oz/240 yards

Gauge:  US 5-6/3.75 - 5.25 mm 5.5 to 6 stitches=1"

Outstanding Review by Gayle
The hand of this BFL/Silk blend is lovely. I used it for a hat, and it's the perfect combination of warmth and drape. I adore the naturally dyed colors, too. (Posted on 12/24/13)
