Let the Kingfisher soar through your knitting projects with this hand dyed Shetland/BFL mix! This vibrant, double knit yarn features a stunning blend of blues and oranges, reminding you of the majestic kingfisher in flight. Get knitting and bring a little of the outdoors inside!

Three of our finest and most luxurious raised breeds come together to make this incredibly soft, strong and versatile yarn. Blue faced Leicester and UK Alpaca wool is soft, smooth, springy and by contrast Shetland is slightly woollier and warmer. The resulting yarn is a lofty fingering weight that knits up beautifully. Ideal for socks, garments or anything that requires some extra strength!

Naturally grey in colour from the Shetland and Grey UK Alpaca fleeces, which are then over dyed using vibrant colours adding depths and dimension to the yarn. 

This blend is a fantastic introductory to working your way into the wide range of rustic British yarns available. Blending with the softness of Alpaca and Blue faced Leicester with the crispy rustic feel of Shetland creates a fantastic yarn that can be worn against the skin with minimum itchiness. 

100% British Yarn

Unlike most yarns suppliers, I have worked hard to ensure my BFL yarn is 100% British- both produced, sourced, and spun in the UK. Most popular Indie yarn dyer wholesalers in the UK send their British wool overseas, across the globe to be spun- adding a huge carbon footprint, and adding the unknown ethical and socio-economic implications of cheap labour costs of developing and middle-income countries. 

Woollen Wytch is proud to hand dyed 100% British yarns and fibre.
