Blue Faced Leicester (Mixed BFL) Spinning Fiber

$16.00

The Blue-Faced Leicester, or BFL, is a long-wool breed of sheep found in the British Isles after 1900.  The skin of the face is dark blue/black and shows through the facial hair making the face look blue.  The wool is very soft for a long-wool breed and has some luster.  The fleece forms fine, curly locks that are soft and silky.  (Staple length 3 to 6 inches.)  These bumps are a mixture of white and grey BFL so the dyes give a more nuanced and richer color.
