This beautiful colorway is the result of overdyeing a BFL Humbug blend (white and brown wool mixed together) with shades of green and blue. The colored base fiber allows for wonderful depth of shade, and dye colors appear saturated and delicious. With a skein of this squishy goodness, you could knit a lovely cowl, hat, or skinny scarf to accent your wardrobe. This would also make a beautiful weft yarn for your loom.

The Blue Faced 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 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 silky. Of the three types of Leicesters, the Blue Faced produces the finest fleece, with a micron count of 24-28.

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

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. (:
