This beautiful hand spun yarn is handpainted in shades of pink, cream and beige. Lustrous and silky, this pair is wonderfully soft and strong with beautiful drape. Perfect for a heavier weight shawlette to keep your shoulders warm on cool Autumn evenings.

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 knitters and fiber artists alike because of its “next to the skin” softness and lustrous shine. These qualities produce a yarn with excellent drape, that is also very soft and squishy. Of the three types of Leicesters, the Bluefaced Leicester produces the finest fleece, with a count of 24-28 microns.

This listing is for two skeins of DK weight yarn as shown, for a total of 570 yards.

75% Bluefaced Leicester wool

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.
