Limited Edition

This luxurious Blue-faced Leicester/Shetland blend creates a wonderfully soft grey undyed base and richly textured yarn that is perfect for knitting garments and accessories. Our cones are a great way to purchase larger quantities of this beautiful 70% Blue-faced Leicester 30% Shetland wool.

The aristocratic Roman nose on the Blue-faced Leicester sheep gives them an certain elegant distinction. Blue-faced Leicester has a softness, but is also hard wearing and holds its shape wonderfully. Pure Shetland wool can be the finest of British breed wools and we select the finest we can find, so our Shetland yarns are particularly soft.

Our BFL/Shetland is oiled on cone, and would be ideal for weavers or hand dyers. You will receive 2 cones, with the weight of wool being at least 1kg.
