A lighter fingering weight than either our Yummy 2-Ply or Cosmic, Northumbria Fingering is spun from the long, lustrous wool of Bluefaced Leicester sheep.  Northumbria Fingering has a nice natural shine that enhances the vibrant, rich colors. It’s great for durable, fine-gauge socks, and lovely in crisp lacy shawlettes.
