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"!
NOTE: For the month of August, I will donate £2 to Young Minds for every skein of Black Dog sold.
BFL Supersock is a soft, durable blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and nylon. Bluefaced Leicester is a British rare breed sheep that produces wool that is next-to-skin soft while being resistant to pilling. This is a smooth 4ply yarn that's just perfect for socks and mittens that are soft and hard-wearing.
Yarn: BFL Supersock
Blend: 75% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester / 25% Nylon

Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London, using only professional-grade acid dyes. The yarns are all carefully rinsed in an unscented wool wash.
We recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.
We do our best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, but please keep in mind that computer monitors vary.
