I think of this yarn as a more of a refined version of our rustic woolen spun BFL Sport. I love Blue Faced Leicester! I like the staple length and the luster. As a dyer, it is a dream to work with, it takes the dye all shiny and vibrant. So why not add in a little silk to soften things up a bit, put a semi-worsted spin on it, then add a single making a lovely round 3-ply yarn. I think the mill really got it right on this one. We are so please to add Silky BFL Sport to our Blue Faced Leicester flock of yarns!
