    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.

                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.
