This is 4 oz of beautifully hand-dyed, natural colored Blue Faced Leicester wool combed top. This combed top is naturally brown BFL wool that has been dyed with professional acid dyes. The resulting colorway is a deeper, natural color with a heathered look that makes a beautiful yarn with a lot of character.
Blue Faced Leicester is a favorite fiber for a lot of spinners and has a longer staple length that makes it wonderful for a beginner.
Blue Faced Leicester is considered a fine, next to skin soft wool and a rare breed. Naturally colored BFL wool can be just a little bit more coarse than the white, but it is still very soft. The scales on the fibers are different from other wools and it has just a bit more shine to it than merino, which is one of the things I love about it.
It is hand-dyed with professional acid dyes and ready for you to felt or spin. Spinning Blue Faced Leicester is always a joy, and I like the fiber so much, that I have my own flock of Blue Faced Leicesters!
This roving was hand-dyed by myself with professional acid dyes and handled carefully to maintain it's fluffiness and draftability. My home is smoke-free and pet-free.
I dye each colorway up in small batches. This takes a lot of time, but I am pleased with the depth of color and unique results from each dye pot.
All my roving is ready to ship right away, and sent first class USPS.
