May I Present: Bluefaced Leicester

I wish you could touch this yarn. It is one of those skeins you want to bury your face in it ; ) It is a Bluefaced Leicester fibre that I have dyed and handspun into a fluffy singles yarn. It has a very long staple length so you can work with a low twist without worrying about it falling apart. It also has a bit of a sheen.

I have been looking for the perfect pattern for it. It has to be something close to my face. Today’s favourite is the Ruffled and Ruched Scarf by Pam Powers. What do you think?

If you would like to find out more about this wonderful fibre and where it comes from I recommend this article on the International Fleeces website.
