Part of the English Longwool Family, the Bluefaced Leicester (pronounced "Lester") breed was developed in the early twentieth century. With a micron count of 24-28, it’s fine enough to wear next to the skin and durable enough to wear well. The staple length is between 3 and 6 inches, which makes it a great fiber for beginning spinners. It is also moderately feltable.
Our base is a 50/50 blend of brown and white fiber.
*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.
