BFL (75%) and Silk (25%) Spinning top for a out of this world spinning experience!
The Bluefaced Leicester sheep breed is very distinct with its Roman nose, long, upright earset, and deep blue skin contrasted with soft, white, semi-lustre wool. The BFL is classified as a Longwool breed.
This listing is British luster longwool. 25-27 microns with staple length 4 ¼ inches (110 mm). The fiber feels finer than the micron count would suggest. The luster promotes intense dye results.
Next to skin soft and dream to spin or dye. Drafts like a dream!
This is top not roving. Top goes through an extra step to carefully align all the fibers in the same direction. Top is considered the highest quality spinning prep.
***Pictures are dyed in Falkland wool (which was the contribution to the box) and the BFL/Silk top is made to order. ***
