This is scoured 100% natural white Bluefaced Leicester fleecewool so the lanolin has been removed.

BFL is a very popular choice and is a good 'British' alternative to Merino as it is naturally fine, soft, lustrous and silky. 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.

      Always buy enough fibre to finish your project in one go to avoid slight shade variations from batch to batch (this is in the nature of natural wool). If colour matching is important to you get a free sample first.

      For spinning...

      100g of fibre spins 100g of yarn the yardage of which depends on how finely you spin. The weight chart above is a helpful guide but will depend on the size and tension of the final garment.

        For felting...

        If the fibre is suitable for felting you'll find that 100 grams will compress down to a grapefruit sized solid 3D shape (approximately). If you only need smaller amounts try our mini selection packs.

        Core wool is a cost effective way to quickly build up 3D shapes before topping off. Another popular product is pre-felt which is ready for further needle felting, or wet felting, or to be used as a base for your project.
