This beautiful soft chunky weight yarn is spun using wool entirely from the Bluefaced Leicester breed of sheep. The Bluefaced Leicester was originally bred in Northumberland from the Leicester Longwool sheep, and is part of the "longwool" family of breeds that grow long locks of curly fibre that often look like ringlets on the sheep. Bluefaced Leicester (or "BFL" for short) is the most luxurious of UK sheep breeds, and is very close to the ubiquitous Merino wool when measured for its fineness.
