Farm Fresh: Bluefaced Leicester Burnt Orange

Regular price $34.00

In stock

210 yards | approx 100 grams | heavy DK weight

A warm and vibrant burnt orange, perfect for autumn-inspired projects.

This 100% wool blend of primarily Bluefaced Leicester, with some Texel and Scotch Mule, offers exceptional crimp and luster. Sourced from a sheep farm in upstate New York, the fiber was scoured at Chargeurs in South Carolina and hand-dyed in the wool at our mill for consistent, non-pooling colors. It was then carded, pin-drafted, and spun on-site. This yarn pairs perfectly with our Making Tracks DK line and supports American-grown wool.

Care

Wet-Blocking Care Instructions

Your project isn’t truly complete until it’s had its first wash! Here’s how to help our yarns reach their full potential:

  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Add a small amount of no-rinse wool wash.
  3. Submerge your knitted item, gently squeezing out any air bubbles to ensure it stays fully underwater.
  4. Soak for up to 10 minutes. While our dyes are tested for colorfastness, some dyes are notoriously difficult to set and may release a small amount of excess color. Using cold water, gentle wool wash, and a short soak will help prevent color redeposit on light-colored fibers.
  5. Drain the water.
  6. Gently lift your knitted item from the water and remove excess moisture by rolling it between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  7. Lay flat and shape to air dry.

For projects with contrasting colors, we recommend steam blocking to avoid any color transfer.
