Black Dog is an almost-black yarn, with splashes of blues and purples throughout. From a distance it looks black, and then it's not until you get up close that you can appreciate the complexity. Anything but "boring black"!
PLEASE NOTE: This yarn is available as a custom order only for a minimum of four skeins. I will dye you up a fresh batch of yarn for your perfect garment. Turnaround time is two to three weeks, but please let me know if you have a particular deadline.
Bluefaced Leicester is a British rare breed sheep. The wool is next-to-skin soft, and with a longer staple length than other yarns it is resistant to pilling. This yarn has great texture, stitch definition, and springiness, and is the perfect go-to yarn for any cosy jumper or cardigan.

Blend: 100% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester

Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London using only professional-grade acid dyes.
I recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.
I do my best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, but keep in mind that computer monitors vary.
