Leicester Rose


"Fibrehut Fusions is my own range of exclusive fibre blends designed to push the boundaries and explore the possibilities of combining fibres beyond the usual merino and silk mixes. I hope you discover some exciting fibres to inspire your next project!" - Gai (FibreHut)

LEICESTER ROSE is a fusion of natural white British Bluefaced Leicester wool and Rose Fibre (made from Rose bushes!)

  • Price per 100 grams (3.5oz)

    We absolutely love this fusion which we think rivals any Merino/Silk blend! The Bluefaced Leicester is as soft as Merino and with it's slightly longer staple, it's easier to spin. Rose fibre has a similar feel to bamboo - it's silky and shiny but not as dense as Mulberry Silk. The resulting fusion is soft, creamy and light with a lovely lustre and is very a dream to spin. The finished yarn is total luxury and we think would challenge any commercially spun BFL for softness. Rose won't readily take up acid dye so dyed fibre and yarn will have white silky threads running through which can help create paler and more delicate shades. Rose will behave as silk when needle felted or wet felted.

    How much fibre will I need?

    The weight chart below is a helpful guide but depends on garment size and tension. 100g of fibre will make 100g of yarn. Yardage will depend on how finely you spin.
