About the Yarn
Astral Bath Orbit Sport is a 4-ply worsted spun, machine washable Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool yarn. BFL is one of the finest longwools, with beautiful lustre and drape. The multi-ply construction gives this yarn great stitch definition, making the textured stitch patterns pop. The slight colour variation of this hand dyed yarn also adds visual depth to the textured stitches. If substituting yarn for your project, look for a yarn with similar properties, especially one that will show the stitches well and drape nicely, such as longwools, longwool blends, or merino/silk blends.
