100% British Superwash Bluefaced Leicester Lustre Wool

BFL fibre is fine, silky, lustrous and strong - an incredibly versatile fibre.

Our BFL yarns are naturally soft but they are also good for items that are subject to wear such as socks, mittens, sweaters and hats. They drape well without heaviness due to the natural crimp of the fibre and, with long staple fibres, these yarns are less prone to pilling than many wools. Because of the natural lustre of the fibre, the yarns dye exceptionally well to produce clear, gleaming colours. The lustre also emphasises the shape of stitches so is ideal for textured stitches and cables.

At 25-26 microns, the fibres are less fine than merino but the BFL fibres have large, smooth scales on their surface so they feel smoother and have a characteristic pearly sheen to them. BFL yarns are a great introduction to the diverse world of British wool breeds and ideal for those looking to expand beyond merino wool.

With its 4 plies, high twist and natural strength, this yarn is suitable for socks when knitted at a tight gauge. A great no nylon sock yarn alternative.
