Weighs 4 ounces.

About Bluefaced Leicester/Silk (75/25):

Part of the English Longwool Family, the Bluefaced Leicester (pronounced "Lester") breed was developed in the early twentieth century. The fiber is fine, with a micron count of 24-28, silky, and lustrous. It’s fine enough to wear next to the skin and durable enough to wear well. Silk adds strength, softness, and shine. *Information from The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson and Carol Ekarius.

Average review
Beautiful fiber. I haven't spun it yet, but I can't keep my hands off it. I know it will be a joy. Prompt shipping, and good packaging. Definately a vendor I want to do business with again.
