The Bluefaced Leicester is a long-wool breed of sheep which originated from Northumberland around the beginning of the 20th century. They have long curly threadlike wool which is dense but lightweight and lustrous. It is often likened to mohair because of its softness. Blended with the sheen and comfort of silk this is a truly decadent yarn!
