Blue John

The Peak District is famous as one of the few places on earth where you can find Blue John – a bluey-purpley mineral made of flourite  This colourway was inspired by this mineral.  Hand-dyed onto a super-soft bluefaced leicester nep yarn, shades of brown, grey-green and vibrant bluey-purple are randomly applied, with the nep adding extra texture.  With 15% nylon nep for added strength, it is a perfect yarn for socks or a one-skein shawl.
