Supremely soft, subtly sheeny and deliciously sumptuous; the wool of the Bluefaced Leicester is Britain’s most luxurious fibre.
With its fine, dense yet lightweight fleece, due to the nature of its tightly purled wool, the noble Bluefaced Leicester produces some of the finest commercial demo-lustre wool in the world. Often considered the “cashmere of British wools”, it it naturally erika’s fibre of choice for creating the best of British wool yarns.
Wool is naturally soft, comfortable and sustainable, making it the ultimate fibre for the hand knitter.
The British Blue 100 collection colours have been created around the story of Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway.
