Countess Ablaze – Lady Persephone Sock Yarn

These beautiful colours are Rebel Batch colours – we gave Countess Ablaze a theme – Amsterdam – and she dyed colours for us! So these colours are unique and one of a kind- to be found nowhere else and never to be repeated!

The Countess hates to describe her products as a workhouse yarn but the reality is, Lady Persephone Sock  is so universal in purposes, that it actually is

The long staple length of the smooth lustre Bluefaced Leicester wool (a British breed of sheep) combined with a touch of nylon, make this a soft yet incredibly durable yarn.

Countess Ablaze hates to describe this yarn as multi-purpose because that doesn’t sound particularly glamorous but if you were stashing yarn with wild abandon, you cannot go wrong with this base. It is perfect for socks, shawls and sweaters alike so once you finally figure out what your yarn will evolve into, it’s just going to work out.

It’s not quite as soft as merino but it won’t pill like a merino. And due to the superwash treatment the yarn will be perfectly fine in the washing machine!
