BFL 2/8 is one of the finest yarns on the planet. Period. It is a fingering-weight long staple wool (this means it has a very strong fiber) that is softer than merino. It’s pure Blue Face Leicester — no superwash, no adulterations.  It is soft, comforting, and warm the way only an unadulterated wool can be. Consider the possibilities of BFL 2/8 for baby layettes, lace shawls, fine sweaters. Imagine what a traditional Fair Isle sweater might look like if you used hand-painted BFL 2/8, and how soft and luscious it would feel. The possibilities are endless . . . and awaiting your hands.

Weaverknits (aka: Ann and Beth) have designed an edgy yet classic cardigan made amazing in Fleece Artist’s Blue Face Leicester 2/8. And, the pattern is FREE at knitty.com !! The beauty is enhanced by the fact that all sizes up to 55″ bust can be knit with only 250g to 500g of BFL 2/8 (that’s 1 skein of each colorway for Medium or smaller and only 2 skeins of each colorway for larger sizes!). Here’s the formula to start some Tempest magic of your own: pick out 1 highly varied colorway and then pick out a subtle colorway that has a color found among all the colors of the first skein. Go to www.knitty.com to download the pattern and cast on! You’ll never find yourself a castaway when you’re knitting or wearing Tempest!
