Bluefaced Leicester wool is a favorite among handspinners for its ease of spinning, lovely softness, gentle springiness, and gorgeous natural colors. Now more than ever before, BFL wool is available to handknitters as well. West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester Roving is a lustrous single-ply yarn, smooth and strong with a hint of a halo. Due to the yarn's soft-spun nature, knitters may find it helpful to work carefully, but those who do will be well rewarded - this yarn has outstanding stitch definition and will make simply breathtaking sweaters, hats and mittens with authentic rustic charm. It felts beautifully too!
