Blue Face Leicester wool is all the rage in the hand spinning world.  Many new spinners and seasoned spinners alike enjoy this fleece.  It has become popular enough recently that hand spinners refer to it as BFL. The staple length on BFL is usually 3-6 inches.  This combed top is mostly in the 4-5 inch range.

It is an incredibly versatile wool being fine enough to not be scratchy.  It is also durable enough to wear well.  It is shiny enough that dyes produce shimmering colors.  It is moderately felt able.  It also blends well with other fibers.  It lends a touch of resilience to yarn.   Blue Face Leicester holds up well to intense wear and is also soft enough to be comfortable next to the skin.  It makes pleasant, hard-wearing sweaters.  It also makes woven fabrics for clothing and household use.
