Hand-dyed Blue Faced Leceister Top

This100% Blue Faced Leceister wool top is hand-dyed here in Vermont. It spins and felts up beautifully and features a lovely hand...soft enough that many people can wear it next to the skin, but because it is a longwool, it wears (stands up to abrasion) really well so is great for outwear too. I'm spinning some up for mittens right now.

Each hank is 4 oz..

We also offer BFL with tussah silk and in an interesting gradient of colors. So if you want something even more special, be sure to check it outl! And for another handpainted top option that is a bit finer and softer, check out the Polwarth.
