Abstract Fiber Blue Faced Leicester

Abstract Fiber Blue Faced Leicester combines softness, sheen, and staple length for a nearly perfect wool.  Loved by beginners and experienced spinners, it is a bit more durable than merino, yet nearly as soft. You'll love watching the beautiful colors spin up to a stunning yarn.

    Comments about Abstract Fiber Blue Faced Leicester:

    I spun this to use to work on my spinning consistency and improving the singles and ply twist in preparation for ordering a larger quantity for my Capstone Project. It is a very easy spin and the resulting yarn is a pleasure to knit with. Highly recommended.

    Quality issues

    By a novice hand spinner

    from Massachusetts

    About Me Novice

    Pros

    • Dyed Evenly
    • Good Weight
    • Pretty Colors Peacock
    • Soft

    Cons

    • Coarse
    • Compacted
    • Slightly Felted

    Best Uses

      Comments about Abstract Fiber Blue Faced Leicester:

      I am a novice spinner so my issues with this product may be from my own inexperience rather than any product defect. The two packages of dyed roving were slightly felted but still useable. In places where the dyer had gone for a darker color of purple or blue, extra care needed to be taken in separating and attenuating the fiber before attempting to spin it. I would recommend this product with some reservations. Roving bleeds slightly when soaked to set the twist.

        Comments about Abstract Fiber Blue Faced Leicester:

        This is a great fiber-no other way to describe it. Long staple, silky hand, and the COLORS!!!! Very easy to draft and has that sheen so characteristic to BFL. A real treat to spin and knit/crochet with. So worth every dime I paid for it.
