Origin: British grown wool & Alpaca. Milled in the U.K. 

About: Light, airy, and warm. BFL is a luster wool meaning it lends strength, shine, and softness to the blend. The unique crimp of Shetland provides elasticity and loft aiding int he insulative property of the yarn. Alpaca provides a soft halo and additional warmth and softness. This the perfect blend for cardigans, outwear, mittens, or any garment that you want to be warm but not weigh you down. 

Tip: ALWAYS alternate skeins while knitting or crocheting to distribute color evenly. Alternating skeins can be super easy with my favorite method dubbed "yarn forward" by Elizabeth Smith Knits click HERE to check out her informative video on how to do this. 

Care Instructions: Hand-wash in cold water with wool wash. Dry flat. Avoid wringing or twisting. 

**Some color loss may occur with initial washings.
