Blue-Faced Leicester

Blue-Faced Leicester

It is hard to improve on perfection, but worsted spinning Blue-Faced Leicester fibre must come close!

These elegant sheep are deservedly among the most popular of all British breeds due to their fine, soft, semi-lustrous fleece.

Despite BFL’s softness, the fibre is also hard wearing and holds its block wonderfully, making it equally ideal for both more durable items and lace garments. This smooth and creamy yarn is available in Lace, 4-ply and Double Knitting versions. The dyed shades are only available in Lace weight yarn.
