Blue Faced Leicester sheep produce a fine, curly, soft fleece that is perfect to knit garments with. Blue Faced Leicester 4 ply wool is a British yarn with soft cosy warmth for almost all your projects. This yarn is smooth, silky and luxurious and is soft next to the skin. No itchy scratchy yarns here!
Ideal for a luxury sweater or cardigan, it can be knitted or crocheted and works to standard 4ply tension for most projects. This yarn is suitable for socks.
We recommend gentle hand washing only.
It also takes natural and Jacquard dyes very well.
