Hand Dyed Bluefaced Leicester/Tussah Silk 75/25 blend, Combed Top in Fireside

Shades of red, pink, and orange, accented with blue and green. This wool will felt.

Bluefaced Leicester is an extremely versatile wool. It falls into the Longwool category, but has unusually fine fibers compared to other Longwool varieties. This results in a wool that is soft enough to wear against the skin for most people, but also has the greater durability and drape that other Longwools are known for. Tussah Silk adds strength, and brings additional drape and sheen to the blend. This blend tends to spin up into a dense, firm yarn with wonderful drape. It has less elasticity than 100% BFL, but more than pure silk. It will not pill as easily as a finewool like Merino. These characteristics make this blend especially appropriate for projects like socks and mittens, which are worn next to the skin, but receive a lot of wear. It is also an excellent choice for lace shawls, and for weaving.
