Bluefaced Leicester, or BFL, is my local wool-sheep, and it’s a lovely beast. The wool is soft and lustrous, with a bit more drape than merino wool and a slight halo, rather like a mohair blend.
It tends to pill less than softer wool, and wears really well in spite of its softness.

A note about colours; digital images plus your screen can alter the colour of yarns slightly. I take pictures in natural light with a digital camera. Please be aware that these are hand-dyed yarns, and although we strive to be as consistent as possible, there may be variability through the skein, especially with more complex colours. That’s the beauty of handmade!
