Today we’re featuring Borzoi, our luxury sock weight yarn. This yarn is 80% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool, and 20% Bamboo. Although there is a relatively small amount of bamboo in the yarn, the yarn has a specific sheen and color because of it. Bamboo is often used as an eco-friendly substitute for silk as they are both straight, shiny, and strong fibers. Paired with the shiny BFL, the yarn has a very soft and silky feel. When dyed, the colors do not absorb as thoroughly as they would in other fiber combinations, since the bamboo is a plant fiber, and the dyes we use are meant for animal fibers. This creates a beautiful, vintage look for the yarn.
The yarn is a round 4 ply, which gives it great stitch definition for cable work and textures, as well as being sturdy enough to withstand the abuse of most feet. Borzoi is great for more-special projects that you’ll cherish for years, as well as being strong enough for harder wearing clothes, like baby sweaters or socks.
