Julie Asselin Leizu Fingering (shown in sample above)
Spun and hand-dyed in Canada, Julie Asselin Leizu Fingering yarn is a beautiful blend of 90% superwash merino and 10% silk. It knits up into a soft, luxurious fabric that works wonderfully for the Bentley Cardigan. The silk content gives it strength, durability, and a gorgeous sheen. Check out our amazing colour selection!
