Eir is 100% Bluefaced Leicester (not superwash!).

Each skein is 4 ounces (115g) and approximately 235 yards, and knits at approximately 20-26 stitches over 4 inches (on US 3-5).

Eir (old Norse for mercy, or help) is named for the Nordic goddess, or valkyrie, associated with medical skill and healing.

This yarn is a wonderfully wooly bluefaced leicester, longer-stapled so it doesn't pill as much as merino and other softer, shorter-stapled wool. It holds its shape well and creates a wonderfully cohesive fabric once knit and blocked. Eir is great for cables as well as stockinette and lace projects. Since it is not superwashed, it retains all the wonderful characteristics of true wool and still has the wonderful, soft scent of lanolin.

It should be hand washed with care and laid flat to dry.
