Bluefaced Leicester is classified as a Longwool breed with a staple length range of 3-6 inches/80-150mm and a fiber diameter of 56s-60s count (28u-24u), which are the fiber numbers you need to spin a high luster yarn with lovely drapes. So now add in a bit of Tussah Silk and you get this wonderful blend, a roving and then yarn with a lovely hand, more luster, a little extra strength and lastly a great spin and knit time.
