Blue Face Leicester Wool Top description:
Bluefaced Leicester is a fine, semi-lustrous "longwool" wool fiber, with a staple length that ranges from 3-6 inches and micron of 24-28 and 56's-60's count. Descending from the Border Leicester breed, their name comes from the fact that the skin on their head that shows through their fleece is a dark blue color. Yarns spun from this breed are very soft, yet strong.
