Bluefaced Leicester - Lace Weight

$35.00

This specialty yarn is the result of two experiments of mine! First, I wanted to see if I could turn a yellow tinted wool base (due to lanolin stain), into a more cool toned or white hue. Applying some simple color theory to the situation, I decided to give this base a light indigo wash. As you can see, my technique got a little bit more refined as I went, but I love that each one is unique with different levels of coloration. Secondly, I wanted a sturdier lace weight to hold along with my 2023 Advent Calendar on a new to me fiber. I could not be more happy with the results!!⁠

Pictured here is my Anthology Throw WIP with the first 7 days of my Advent held together with this lace weight yarn.⁠ Right before advent season I always get so many messages, asking what colorway would pair best with my Advent and my answer is always - Fresh Linen. But I wanted to try something different! Even though this isn’t a perfect cream, the tiny changes in color saturation make it such a joy to work up.

This base was incredibly time intensive to dye, and because of that I will have very limited quantities available and can’t foresee dyeing it again.

Please note that this skein will not be labeled as it is a specialty product and not a regular in-stock base.
