Blue-faced leicester is a wonderful alternative to merino, which has recently come under criticism for animal welfare issues. Additionally, unlike merino which has to be shipped from the warmer regions where it is raised, blue-faced leicester is a British breed. Feel confident knowing your yarn choices are ethically and ecologically sound. With lush plant-based dyes, this lovely natural product is guilt-free for your next project.
