We've just added more incredible colours to this range of luxury silk blends which are perfect for the spring and in between seasons for garments and accessories.
Made from 55% Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) and 45% Silk with a generous 800 metres of lace weight yarn per 100 gram hank, Gleem is hand dyed in shimmering complimentary tones, making it perfect for giving special lace projects a ‘wow’ factor.
The combination of Bluefaced Leicester wool gives the yarn structure while the silk provides a beautiful sheen and makes the colours glow wonderfully. The blend of both fibres makes the yarn strong enough to be blocked well and show off lace patterns to their best advantage.

Important note regarding the colour of this yarn: This product has been hand dyed in skeins and is therefore full of subtle variation. To ensure overall consistency in the appearance and colour distribution of your knitting or crochet project, we strongly suggest you work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball particularly if your project calls for more that one skein of yardage.
