> Hand Dyed Yarns > Bluefaced Leicester Yarns

Bluefaced leicester is a wonderful wool that dyes superbly but differs from merino type wools in a number of ways.  It is long stapled (each fibre averages 6 inches or more in length) and lustrous, with wonderful drape and strength.  This type of wool is not as fluffy as a merino wool, and therefore it is ideal for projects where you want good stitch definition or a strong fabric.  It is perfect for projects like socks, mitts, or sweaters, since this wool is long wearing and strong, and is also wonderful for projects like shawls thanks to the excellent drape and luster of this wool.  will and wlsaas.,and is lovely ins araringa
