    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 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.
