Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) Aran – Undyed


Blue Faced Leicester sheep wool is one of the nicest British breed wools for softness and versatility.  BFL is a creamy, soft wool with slight lustre and is suitable to wear next to the skin. (Its called Blue Face because the sheep’s head is a soft grey blue colour.)

Blue Faced Leicester Aran can be used just as it is for a wide variety of garments and accessories, but can also be skein dyed or garment dyed if you wish. It is soft and smooth to knit and crochet with, has good stitch definition. This yarn is perfect for the Oxford Poncho, one of the most popular Gorgeous Yarns patterns and will show off the lattice stitching beautifully. Alternatively, why not choose this blue faced Leicester Aran wool to knit a traditional Aran jumper?

We recommend hand wash only for this luxury yarn. Wash gently with a liquid wool wash and blot dry with a towel, then finish drying flat away from direct heat.

Gorgeous yarns are completely natural, luxury fibres, ready to use just as they are or to dye. They are an undyed natural cream colour and have premium luxury fibres like Merino, Alpaca, Silk, or Cotton. Gorgeous yarns are organic where possible, and always chosen for you with great care so your project made with this yarn is literally gorgeous! Want to know more?
