Blue Face Leicester white wool, washed

Blue Face Leicester is a semi rare breed of long-wooled sheep. These animals produce a fine to medium fine wool that grows in long curly spirals. It has a great feel and bounce and is a luxury handspinning fleece. The wool takes dye very well, and is good for felting too. Because of its fine texture, it is a good choice for blending with exotic fibers like silk, mohair, angora or alpaca. This fleece has been washed and is not greasy.

Offered at $2 per ounce plus shipping.
