Mixed Blue Face Leicester is a 50/50 blend of the natural white and natural black blue face Leicester. The colors are lightly blended to provide the dyer limitless color possibilities with natural occurring shades. BFL is highly prized for it's likeness to mohair and for it's production of attractive, lustrous yarns with good resilience. 


Black Blue Face Leicester - Natural color Blue Face lustre longwool. 25-27 microns, staple length 4 inches, 110 mm. The fibre feels finer than the micron count would suggest. Overdyes beautifully. Very rich colors can be achieved dyeing this fibre


Blue Face Leicester - British lustre longwool. 25-27 microns, staple length 4 ¼ inches, 110 mm. The fibre feels finer than the micron count would suggest. The lustre promotes intense dye results


Superwash BFL - these fibres have been superwash treated. This process chemically removes the scales from the wool shaft and the fibre is then treated with a softening agent to smooth out the edges that occur after the scales are removed. This makes the fibre and yarn spun machine washable, without felting or shrinkage

Corriedale Cross - 29.5 micron, Staple length 90 mm. Color is more cream than white. Value priced wool


Falkland Wool Top - micron 26, staple length 4-6 inches, 100-115 mm. The base flock of the Falkland wool is Corridale, Polwarth and Dohne Merino. These breeds were developed for dual purpose, meat and wool production and are selectively bred for the ability to survive in the harsh climate of the Falkland Islands. The upside of the harsh climate is that insects and disease associated with them are not a problem. The wool is almost guaranteed to be chemical free. This wool is processed in the Swiss Alps from the melted snow to retain the whiteness and softness of the wool


Brown Select Jacob - All the way from the UK. Micron 26-31 staple length 3.5 inch, 90 mm. A rich dark brown color, primitive breed, Jacob fleece is light, springy and open.


Superfine Merino Wool - staple length for merino- 70mm or 2.75” Micron 19.5 + Superfine Merino, 21.5 micron + Superwash Merino. Merino's have some of the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Superfine Merino is perfect for blending with other fine fibres such as Cashmere and Silk.


*Australian Merino Top - this top is very white and feels unbelievably soft. 15.5 micron Australian Merino Top Ecru Fiber, staple length 3 inches, 80 mm - this is the wool for that lace project! The cost reflects the fineness of this fibre. The smaller the micron number the finer the wool.


Shetland Moorit - 24-29 microns, staple length 3 inches, 90 mm. Natural red-brown color. Primitive breed prized for it's fine and soft wool with lovely crimp.

Wensleydale - lustre longwool. 30-36 microns staple length 7 inches. 180 mm. Shiny wool that takes dye very well, producing intense rich colors. Wensleydale wool is the finest and most valuable lustre longwool in the world.
