Blue faced Leicester is one of the softest and most beloved of the British sheep breed wools, soft enough to wear next to the skin. I love to comb this with tussah silk, other wools, or even SeaCell fibre for a beautiful blend. This is the creamy white selection from the BFL, suitable for working as is or taking vibrant or subtle colour. I’d describe this colour as almost a light gold, when compared to a true white fleece, and I think that is a beautiful base for overdyeing. BFL sheep do come in a range of natural colours, and we stock the gentle biscuit-grey oatmeal BFL.
This is British wool, non-superwash.
Sold in units of approximately 50g.
