This beautiful 2 ply hand spun yarn is hand dyed in shades of blue, turquoise, aqua and teal. Lustrous and silky, this skein is wonderfully soft and strong with beautiful drape. Whatever you choose to create, you'll love working with this beautiful yarn.

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 DK weight yarn as shown.

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

288 yds
3.7 oz
12-14 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.

Fantastic customer service! Shipping was delayed due to a blizzard and loss of power, but somehow she managed to reach out to me and kept me fully informed of how things were going until she could ship the yarn. The yarn itself is gorgeous and I can’t wait to use it. (:
