This luscious 2-ply skein is richly hand dyed in shades of pink and green. Lustrous and silky, this fiber combo is wonderfully soft and strong with excellent drape. Would make a beautiful cowl or skinny scarf.

The Bluefaced Leicester is known for its exceptional fleece. BFL is classified as a longwool breed because of the way their locks of wool are formed. Its fleece is in high demand from handspinners and fiber artists because of its “next to the skin” softness and lustrous shine. These qualities produce a yarn that has excellent drape, and is very soft and squishy. Of the three types of Leicesters, the Bluefaced produces the finest fleece, with a micron count of 24-28 microns.

This listing is for one skein of Worsted weight yarn, as shown.

Blend contains:
75% Bluefaced Leicester wool
25% Tussah silk

243 yds
3.8 oz
9-12 wpi

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt. If that is not your intention, please be sure to handwash gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like it in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
