Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is a smooth, worsted-spun and plied yarn. It has a lovely sheen and great bounce.  BFL is a strong wool that is still next to the skin soft making it ideal for a wide range of projects such as hats, mittens, jumpers, sock and shawls. It gives excellent stitch definition so works wells for patterns using a variety of stitch patterns (stocking, textured, brioche and cables). It wears well and pills very little. 


Skeins are hand dyed in small batches so some small differences may occur between them. 

If using multiple skeins in your project, you should alternate between skeins every couple of rows for a more consistent look. 


It is recommended that you hand wash your item and lay flat to dry.
