Superwash 100% British Bluefaced Leicester Lustre Wool - softness and lustre, the best of British!
The Bluefaced Leicester is the finest UK wool commercially available today. It has a completely unique character combining softness with a silky texture and sheen.
On the animal, the fleece is formed from long "locks" of fibre giving the sheep a distinctive look.
Bluefaced Leicester is one of the longest wool fleeces available and the yarns are therefore stable and very hard wearing and low pilling.

This yarn has been dyed using professional quality acid dyes and then rinsed and washed in gentle wool soap.
Yarns are delivered in the skein so you will need a swift and ball winder. If you would like me to send the yarn wound into a cake, please let me know.
Our yarns are dyed in small batches and mostly one-of-a-kind colourways ... please me sure you purchase sufficient yarn to complete your project.
