100% British Superwash Bluefaced Leicester

Bouncy, super-soft skeins made up of hardwearing long staple BFL. This blend is highly twisted to make the yarn durable enough for socks but has a lovely soft, bouncy handle making it perfect for accessories and next to skin garments for sensitive people!

Bluefaced Leicester wool combines three highly prized qualities for knitters:

  1. a softness similar to Merino
  2. a long staple fibre which makes this yarn hard wearing and very low pilling
  3. a natural lustre which gives the yarn a gently sheen, reflecting light to enhance stitchwork and colour

We only use supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester which means that the fibre is picked through at twice the rate that normal wools are handled and then examined again before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the softest BFL is used for our blends, delicate enough for the most sensitive skins.
