Handspun Superwashed BFL Yarn - Raspberry Ripple - 270 yds. -2 ply
4 oz. of hand-dyed Superwashed BFL (Blue Face Leicester) top was used to spin this 270 yds. of 'Raspberry Ripple' 2-ply yarn. It's a slightly thick/thin handspun at 11-12 WPI - soft, squishy and ready to knit, crochet or weave into something scrumptious!
BFL wool is one of my favorites to spin - and wear! It's great for just about anything - cowls, hats, scarves.....
All spun and plied on my trusty Ashford wheel. (My Norwegian Grandma's century old wheel that came from Norway with her in the early 1900's has been retired for a few years now - she became a little too fragile and deserved to be able to watch over my work with dignity.)
Because the yarn is handspun, there will be slight differences throughout - that’s the beauty of handmade.
Even though it's a superwashed wool, I prefer to treat it gently, washing by hand and laying flat to dry.
My kitties aren't allowed to smoke or play in my fibers. Once in a while, though, a stray hair will find it's way into whatever I'm working on. So, if you're sensitive to the little furry creatures, please be aware of this beforehand.
