Bluefaced Leicester is a popular wool that is both soft and durable - a rare compromise in 100% wool.  British BFL is some of the best in the world due to its exceptional lustre and softness. 

This yarn is hand-dyed locally in Cambridge.  These semi-solid colours were designed to be rich yet subtle enough to make modern-looking garments or accessories.
