Ancient Arts Folk Art (ret)
The Ancient Arts Folk Art Collection is hand-dyed on a base of 100% superwash BFL (a.k.a. Bluefaced Leicester) yarn. BFL is long-stapled wool, meaning that each fibre averages at least 6 inches in length. This gives the yarn wonderful lustre, drape, and strength! It’s not as fluffy as merino wool, but offers instead a resilient, hard-wearing fabric and great stitch definition.
The gorgeous array of colours in this collection were inspired by folk art traditions around the world.
