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. The Alpaca gives this yarn even more softness! Ideal for socks, shawls, scarves, hats, jumpers and baby items.
