    Blue Faced Leicester is the finest of 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. Blue Faced Leicester is one of the longest wool fleeces available and the yarns are therefore stable and very hard wearing and low pilling.  Ideal for socks, shawls, scarves, hats, jumpers and baby items.
    Recommended needle size: 2.5 – 4mm
    Gauge (stocking stitch) 28 sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4inches on 3.25 mm (US3) needles.
    This super soft yarn is reminiscent of the vigour and enthusiasm of the young life bursting forth of the new spring birch buds
