Hogmanay is a colourway originally created for Edinburgh Yarn Festival, reflecting bright flashes of colour from fireworks across the dark sky over Edinburgh for new year's celebrations. It works up as a deep, dark aubergine-black with bright colour flashes throughout. It's such a great colourway that it's now a regular part of the range.
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.
