Red Earth – Bluefaced Leicester 4ply


This is really special fibre rom locally farmed Devon flocks. Bluefaced Leiceste is wonderfully strong yet has a lot of softness and drape to it, with stunning texture. The Devon-bred BFL is some of the finest in Britain – soft, lustrous and with a silky lustre.

Thanks to its strength this yarn would work well for socks. Its softness will also make wonderful garments, accessories and baby clothes.

Red Earth is my most popular shade and well loved by you and I. It’s back on several of the yarn bases.
