Blue Faced Leicester/Corridale Mohair

Blue Faced Leicester/Corridale Mohair


Ontario wool that we bought from Shepherds Hill Farm and had spun at Wellington Fibre Mill in Elora, Ontario with some of their own mohair. The wool is from a Blue Faced Leicester and Corridale sheep breed. This is very soft and durable yarn with a beautiful sheen and halo.

Each skein is one of a kind. All yarns are treated with a mordant to insure the dyes last. We use alum and sometimes iron as our mordants. Some natural dyes are more long lasting than others. We avoid the more fugitive natural dyes as they tend to fade in the sun quickly or lose their colour with time. All naturally dyed fibres will fade a bit over time so we recommend that you store them out of the sun and hand wash in cold water.

Our fingering weight skeins are 130g each so you can knit a nice tall pair of socks if you wish. This means they are $32 compared to the worsted weight skeins which are 110g and $30.
