A spinners DREAM! 

 This English Longwool breed was developed from the Border Leicester in the early 20th century. 

With a staple length of 6-8 inches this fiber is easy to spin. A hearty micron count of 26. Long curly lustrous fibers lend a finished product with drape and shine! You won't believe how soft and buttery this fiber is! A lacey shawl made of BFL will drape over your shoulders and sway over your curves as you walk. The scales on the individual fibers are shaped differently than, say, merino wool which makes BFL a little harder to felt. This is a strong wool with curl and crimp. Soaks up dye brilliantly.

Awesome Fiber

Most excellent. I used this incredible fiber to spin and knit a 3-ply sweater and a 2-ply shawl. I WANT MORE. No VM, well prepared, drafts like a dream. You can view the spinning projects and knitted projects on my Ravelry profile. Highly recommended but not until after I get mine. Bwahaha
