Lichen BFL/Silk

Regular price $37.75 Sale

Out on a hike in the woods of Maine, I've sometimes come across beautifully colored lichens, some this vibrant greeny-yellow.

*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.

A 75/25 blend of BFL and silk. Part of the English Longwool Family, the Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) breed was developed in the early twentieth century. The fiber is fine, 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. Silk adds strength, softness, and shine.
