The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees.
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas.
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

From "The Highway Man" by Alfred Noyes

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.
