    Worsted, Not Aran Weight

      • Sweaters

      Comments about Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran:

      Of 11 balls used so far, only 1 had a knot mid-skein. Also, yarn is somewhat loosely woven, so if re-knitting an area after multiple unravelings, you may have to be careful to not show individual plies.

        Comments about Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran:

        I used this to make a basic hood, and was very impressed with the quality and ease it knit up. This fabulous yarn gives exceptional stitch definition, with a lovely natural sheen. I bet it would be striking in something with more of a pattern as well - guess I'll have to get some more!

        Barely Aran, more like heavy worsted

        By Crystal

        from Delaware

        Pros

        • Nice colors

        Cons

        • Somewhat 'dry'

        Best Uses

          Comments about Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran:

          I bought this yarn in several colors to make a stranded sweater. I have used natural undyed BFL in the past and loved the plump neat stitches so I was looking forward to a dyed version. This yarn is not advertised as a superwash but it feels like it - a little dry and processed. At 18st to 4 inches washed and blocked I ended up with a somewhat loose fabric. This yarn grows like crazy. After a soak it grew too 16st(19.5 prewash) so I threw it in a hot dryer and it snapped back a but none the worse for wear. The fabric still had a lot of 'holes' when slightly stretched. It's not prickly but it's not ooooh I want to touch it soft. I could wear it next to the skin. I think it would be better for cable work which might help with the density issue. Cascade 220 stockinet looks better at this guage in my opionion. Sadly I'm sending it back as it's not suitable for my project. It might work well for childrens clothing at a tighter guauge since I think it would hold up well in the wash. Might reccomend - depending on the project.

          This yarn is heaven to use

                Comments about Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran:

                Good for cables and open work.
                Cooperates with you, but bounces back and holds its own in the stitch process.
                The plies are a bit loose, but no noticeable splitting.
                A real pleasure to use, this yearn will remind you why knitting is addictive. Highly recommended.
