The Bluefaced Leicester is the finest UK wool commercially available today. It has a completely unique character combining softness with a silky texture and sheen. On the animal, the fleece is formed from long "locks" of fibre giving the sheep a distinctive look. Bluefaced Leicester is one of the longest wool fleeces available and the yarns are therefore stable and very hard wearing and low pilling.
