Bluefaced Leicester hails from Leicestershire in the English Midlands and is so named because the sheep's face appears to have a blue tint due to the dark skin underneath the short white hair.

Spun from 100% BFL wool, and put up with a "shetland twist," this is a superior hand-knitting yarn because of its soft and lustrous qualities. As such, the resulting yarn yields hard-wearing garments, like sweaters and other outerwear. However, the wool is not just strong, it is soft. And because the wool of the Blue Faced Leicester is curled–rather than crimped–the resulting fiber has excellent drape.

This yarn is easy-care from non-mulesed, Bluefaced Leicester wool harvested from sheep ethically raised in the UK.

British Wool spun in Turkey.
