Ancient Arts Meow
The Ancient Arts Meow 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.

Ancient Arts donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all Meow Collection yarns to benefit stray and abandoned cats. In Canada and internationally outside of the USA, donations are made to The Meow Foundation, and in the USA, donations are made to Best Friends Animal Society. The yarn's label shows a picture of a cat or kitten that has been rescued, as well as information about this donation program.
