Willow is a soft but oh-so-durable blend of 80% superwash Blue-Faced Leicester and 20% nylon. Blue-Faced Leicester (BFL) is a breed of sheep whose fleece is long and lustrous. Yarn spun from BFL is more pill-resistant than from fine-wool breeds, yet it is still next-to-skin soft.
Details: Willow sock yarn comes in 4 oz skeins, each measuring approximately 420 yards. While this yarn can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cold water and laying it flat to dry.
