The Bluefaced Leicester comes from two flocks here on the Black Isle – Wester Raddery and Craiglands are each just a handful of miles from my home in Fortrose. These two flocks of majestic-looking Bluefaced Leicesters produce typically fine, silky and lustrous fleeces. The Suri Alpaca used in this blend is sourced from a small flock in the north of England.  The natural silver is a blend of several undyed shades, giving a heathery depth to the silver grey colour.  There is also a natural white version which takes natural dyes beautifully.

This special luxury yarn was beautifully spun by The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders.

BFL Suri is ideal for the Timely Cardigan, Avoch Shawl and many other projects!

  1. Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed by The Border Mill from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
  2. I do my best to show the yarn colours as accurately as possible but please be aware that colours do vary from monitor to monitor.
  3. Your yarn should be gently hand washed in cool water using pH neutral wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak. This may seem time consuming at first but should soon become an enjoyable part of working with a gently treated natural product.
  4. All my dyed colours have been thoroughly washed and rinsed however there may be a slight release of residual colour on washing – this shouldn’t change the overall yarn colour or alter other colours.
