Purely BFL 150

$45.00 CDN

This 100% Superwash BFL Fingering yarn has a lovely sturdy yet soft hand and smooth twist, making it perfect for lace shawls, cowls, and lightweight garments.   What does BFL stand for?  Bluefaced Leicester.  It is a breed of sheep that has a longer staple  length than merino and is less prone to pilling.   While not quite as soft as merino, this wool is still quite fine and has a beautiful hand. The larger 150g put-up gives a nice amount of yardage, one skein will often make a lovely sized shawl.  While this wool is nylon-free,  some may find the longer staple length of the BFL breed to be suitable for socks.  You  could always use a reinforcing thread in the harder-wearing areas if this is a concern.  Look at my Fine Foot BFL base if you prefer a wool/nylon blend  for your  socks.
