Ashland Bay Blue Faced Leicester Top

Ashland Bay's 100% Bluefaced Leicester in its natural undyed state, with a long staple, medium amount of crimp and a super smooth draft, this fiber is a favorite of handspinners, and produces yarns with beautiful luster and next-to-skin softness. Bluefaced Leicester offers a fine surface to any wet or needle felting projects, and takes dye well when used for home dyeing.

Note: Fiber ordered by the ounce may have its quantity adjusted before shipping to reflect its actual net weight.

          This product was wonderful! I recently used this with my students for a class I taught at Vogue Knitting Live in Pasadena, CA. Everyone loved the softness and the quality of the fiber!My students were eager to buy more and we loved they way it dyed with a lovely halo effect.

                  I have just learned how to spin (with both a drop spindle and spinning wheel), and so far Blue Faced Leicester is one of my favorites to work with. I was very satisfied with this purchase.

                      Easy to spin. Flows like butter. Great for a beginner spinner. Works up to a very soft yarn and dyed very easily.
