Blue Faced Leicester is a longer stapled wool (the individual fibres are longer) which is fine enough for next-to-skin wear and very hard to felt. It is considered very easy to spin, and is easy to dye with acid dyes (including food coloring and drink mix).

It is extremely popular for fine to medium yarns for anything from lace to socks to light sweaters, and insulates and wears well enough for outerwear too. An excellent choice for early spinners and spinners progressing to more intermediate and advanced levels, BFL is one of the most popular spinning fibres around today.
