About the Fibre

Staple length 80-150cm. Micron count 24-28.


Scoured, uncarded Blue Faced Leicester Fleecewool. For felting, or for special spinning projects with texture.

Each bag contains 100g of wool.

Combing and carding are essential parts of preparing a fleece for spinning into a uniformly aligned yarn, but these locks have a purpose, too! Excellent for making dolls' hair, curly fur for felted critters, or for adding a natural texture to any felting project. Spinning from these is possible, but not recommended for beginners.

For prepared roving, see our Blue Faced Leicester Wool Top.

Origin: United Kingdom

About the Breed

Blue Face Leicester is a longwool breed of sheep developed by Robert Bakewell, in Dishley, Leicestershire in the eighteenth century through careful breeding.

They are tall, with cool grey faces, long rabbit-like ears, and a characteristic "Roman" nose.

They are a predominantly white breed, but does carry a recessive black gene that can produce black or grey fleeces in some instances.
