BFL natural oatmeal
Fine, soft, lustrous, silky and 100% natural Bluefaced Leicester combed wool top!
BFL is a very popular choice and is a good 'British' alternative to Merino. 100% natural shade so no dyes used. BFL wool is fine enough to be very comfortable when worn next to the skin, yet is durable and long wearing.
A fine, soft, lustrous, silky, English longwool approx 25 to 26 microns thick with a staple length of around 85mm to 90mm.
What can I use it for?
Use our BFL with total confidence for all your spinning, felting and blending projects. A popular choice for spinning on the wheel or drop spindle. Lovely results can be had when dyeing with acid milling dyes. Great for wet felting and needle felting. There are also limitless possibilities for blending BFL with other wool or fibres such as silks, flax, bamboo etc.
How much fibre will I need?
This will depend on how finely you spin plus the size and tension of the final knitted garment. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, always buy a little bit more than you think you'll need (that's what stashes are for!)
You can order a FREE SAMPLE of this item to try, feel and colour match at home! Please note: we allow a maximum of 8 samples in total per order and post & packing will still apply.
Natural & biodegradable
Wool is 100% natural. Every year sheep produce a new fleece making it a renewable fibre source. At the end of its useful life it can be returned to the soil where it will decompose.
Monitor, phone & tablet settings can affect the product colours and shades shown. There could also be slight shade variations from batch to batch.
