The Uncommon Thread – BFL Singles


The BFL Singles is a stunning single ply made of 100% bluefaced Leicester wool. Longwool breeds like BFL produce hard wearing yarns with a lot of drape. This yarn has a natural lustre which gives a beautiful sheen to the thread.  More durable than your average single ply, this yarn has a soft and silky handle and catches dyes beautifully. Perfect for those light garments and accessories like lacy shawls.

The marriage of luxurious bases and a distinctive colour palette is what makes any of the Uncommon Thread yarn truly unforgettable. This artisan company has been hand-dying here in Brighton since 2010 providing us with some of our all-time favourite yarns. Colours from their collections are uniquely rich, deep and vibrant ranging from beautiful semi-solids to subtle variegated.

Weight: 4 ply (fingering)  

Fibre: 100% bluefaced Leicester wool – superwash

Skein: 100 g = 400 m (437 yds) 

Spin: worsted spun

Care: machine washable on a cool wool cycle (hand washing recommended to prolong the life of your knitwear)



Please note hand dyed colours can vary slightly within and between dye lots. This is what makes each skein uniquely beautiful. Please be sure to order enough yarn to complete your project to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two skeins at once, alternating every few rows. At YAK we try to ensure that our photos represent colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that these can vary depending on your computer monitor settings.
