British Fibre. British Spun and dyed.

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is a British longwool, with a rich lustre that yields very bright and rich colours.
It has a very glossy, smooth look with  a little bit of a slick handle, and yet still hard-wearing, crisp and springy.

Hand-dyed by Caerthan, we're so thrilled to have this at Loop.
All yarns are kettle-dyed using his own blends of single pigment dyes, yielding rich, strong colours with lots of subtle detailing inspired by Anglo-Saxon and Celtic art.
There are also beautiful neutrals and greys which can be used on their own or to coordinate with the more vibrant colourways.
