Leizu Fingering

$32.00

We love Leizu Fingering by Julie Asselin! Not only is it dyed and spun in Canada, Julie’s colourways are always perfect, and the 90% superwash merino / 10% silk blend makes it ideal for a huge range of projects. The name for this yarn is inspired by Leizu, a legendary Chinese empress who, according to legend, discovered silk and sericulture when a silk worm’s cocoon fell into her tea.

Because it’s a hand dyed yarn, we recommend that you buy enough for your project  - we may not be able to get the same colour, and there are no dye lots.

Looking for project ideas? Why not try our Baby Bundle Kit, or knit yourself a Piece of Silver or No Frills Sweater using Leizu (held together with Silk Mohair).

If you’re thinking about using Leizu Fingering in your next project, we have a handy guide to using hand dyed yarn here.
