This blend makes a deep forest green tweed with flecks of bright plum throughout it. It is composed of primarily Blue-Faced Leicester wool which is a long wool originating from Britain. The fleece from this breed is hard-wearing but soft and has a lot of loft to it. A yarn made from this blend will likely also be hard-wearing but will have it's own natural softness especially with the merino blended in it.
With both of these in mind, it would spin into a really nice sock yarn - softness, lot's of strength and lots of loft to trap that warm air!
