Well-bred but streetwise, Kettle Yarn's ISLINGTON DK is a lightweight blend, versatile and strong while maintaining buttery softness – a sophisticated choice for everyday items, luxurious next-to-skin wear and precious accessories.

This stunning pale blue - Shiraai - is a limited edition of Indigo dyed Islington DK. As soft as the softest merino, 100% British superwash Bluefaced Leicester tempers the silk’s slipperiness while adding strength and elasticity. The high percentage of BFL also makes items hardwearing, very low pilling and long lasting. The addition of 45% silk adds a sophisticated sheen and drape with crispness and uniformity for stunning stitch definition.

Purchased from the British Wool Marketing Board, Kettle Yarn only use supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester fleece. ‘Supersorting’ is when the fibre is picked through – or cleaned of any unwanted bits – twice as much as normal wools are handled and then examined again before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the very softest BFL is used for our blends, delicate enough for the most sensitive skins.
