Blue Faced Leicester - "Americana" There are a few areas of mixed coloring in this. It is not a pure stripe.
4 oz. braid
Blue Faced Leicester is a nice fleece for a beginner and experienced spinner alike. It has a bit more "grip" than some other silky smooth fleeces, but is still next to the skin soft. In fact this BFL is softer than some others I have felt. Really nice stuff.
Every effort was made to photograph the colors accurately, however since monitors vary the colors could also vary slightly.
Dyed with professional strength dyes.
Since this is not superwash wool, it needs to be hand washed without agitation and layed out or hung to dry.
Some slight bleeding can occur in any hand dyed product the first few washes, so you may want to wash separately.
I love how it's coming out so far. Very easy to spin too. Will be plying it with a bronze color yarn. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
