A&P BFL Smooth Sock
British Blue Faced Leicester hand dyed in small batches. The high twist gives a durable yarn with great stitch definition. Very soft for wearing next to the skin so ideal for shawls, scarves, gloves and hats, and strangely enough, socks. This is the most hard wearing, pure wool sock yarn that we can find but it isn’t as tough as a sock yarn with a percentage of nylon.

Tension – 32 stitches and 48 rows to 10 cm/4 inch square
Recommended needle – 2.25mm
Fibre – 100% Blue Faced Leicester
Washing – Machine washable on a gentle wool cycle using a mild detergent or hand wash.
Ainsworth & Prin yarn is hand dyed in small batches. We try to achieve consistent colours but each skein is unique so when using more than one skein of a colour in a project we really recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows.
