This is a Blacker Yarns Limited Edition yarn.

Bluefaced Leicester is deservedly one of the most popular British breeds, & are very elegant sheep. The sheep produce soft, lustrous fleeces which create yarns of superior elegance.

The worsted spun finish of this 4 ply compliments the BFL beautifully. We have created a smooth, soft, springy yarn; it is truly a joy to knit with!

Despite BFL’s softness, the fibre is also hard wearing and holds its block wonderfully, making it ideal for both more durable items and lace garments.
