Due to the large diameter (32 to 40 microns) and the structure of their fibre, longwools are strong, hard-wearing and very lustrous, ideal to create heavier knitwear or outer garment. Bluefaced Leicester fleece forms long, narrow, curly locks and present a fibre diameter varying between 28 and 24 microns, which makes it thinner than most longwools. Consequently it is also much softer and silky. Due to these structural properties, the Blue-faced Leicester wool is great to create a yarn both strong and soft, that drapes beautifully once knitted with a fabulous stitch definition.
