Bluefaced Leicester

Bluefaced Leicester

Regular price $10.20 Sale

Part of the English Longwool Family, the Bluefaced Leicester (pronounced "Lester") breed was developed in the early twentieth century. The fiber is soft, with a micron count of 24-28, silky, and lustrous. It’s fine enough to wear next to the skin and durable enough to wear well. With a staple length of 3-6 inches, this is a great fiber for beginning spinners. It is also moderately feltable. *Information from The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson and Carol Ekarius.

This BFL is a 50/50 blend of black and white fiber.

Sold in 4 ounce quantities.
