This lovely two ply yarn was spun from fiber hand dyed by West Coast FibreWorks. You'll find deep shades of burgundy, wine, red, with white and subtle hints of green. This yarn would be perfect for getting a head start on your Christmas knitting! Please note this yarn is superwash and is not suitable for felting.

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.

You are getting one skein of light worsted weight yarn, as shown, with a total of 231 yards.

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

This yarn is superwash and will not felt, however, I still recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your finished garment.

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