British Blue Faced Leicester DK


Blue Faced Leicester DK has joined the flock at Gorgeous Yarns!

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.) These sheep  produce a fine, curly, soft fleece that is perfect to knit or crochet garments with. It can be used just as it is and can also be skein dyed or garment dyed if you wish.  This yarn is smooth, silky and luxurious and is soft next to the skin. No itchy scratchy yarns here!

This yarn is ideal for garments like jumpers and cardigans. It will wear well and last.

Treat yourself to this luxury wool and make something extra special to wear. Why not choose one of our patterns……?

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?
