Item details

This listing is for one 100g braid of this lovely fibre. Hand dyed Bluefaced Leicester or BFL top fibre is so soft and squishy, it's incredible. I love BFL any way it comes - in locks from the natural fleece or combed into top, it is lovely to work with. The wave of the crimp from each lock is evident in the top and the fibre has a lovely silky soft handle to it. This is going to be a fun spin for someone out there!

This blend is called Copper and will make gorgeous yarn or felt. It's a blend of warm coppery shades with pops of brighter orange and all set against the background of the natural cream of the colourway.

I normally dye two braids at the most in one colourway, and don't often repeat them exactly, so this shade is a one-off. I hope it speaks to you.

It will make lovely yarn - from chunky to finer than fine. The choice is yours. It would make exceptional socks or a pretty cabled hat to keep out the winter chill.

As well as spinning yarn, you could always use this fibre in a felting project. Bluefaced Leicester fibre felts beautifully and the colours will blend into a harmonious felted piece.

Happy Spinning and Felting!
