This 70% Blue Faced Leicester and 30% silk top is hand-painted for Homestead Fiber Crafts by local artisan, Donna Arispe. Her beautiful fibers are dyed in small batches and then carefully hand-fluffed and braided to preserve the alignment of the fibers for easy spinning.
This top is easy for a beginner to work with as well as the experienced spinner. Blue Faced Leicester is a long wool breed that characteristically has a lovely luster. Here at Fiber Crafts we enjoy spinning with it and the silk adds to the luster that is already in the long wool fibers.
