Scylfing is a characterful yarn with a beautifully soft handle, spun from a 75/25 blend of the finest British Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland wool, and has been custom-spun for Triskelion by Laxtons in Yorkshire. It has a 3-ply construction, medium spin, and is a good all-round, general purpose 4ply weight yarn. The rough, ‘rustic’ blend of grey Gotland with the creamy Bluefaced Leicester gives the yarn a heathered look, and lends itself to great depth of colour.
Each 100 gram hank is approximately 350 metres of yarn. We recommend a hand-wash with gentle detergent in warm water in order to keep the colours looking their best. The yarn has been hand-dyed in a smoke-free home.
