80 % BFL/20 % Nylon – 115 g/ 377 m

This fingering wight  yarn comes from a breed of sheep named Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) raised mainly in the UK. It is renowned for its softness, drape and sturdiness. With the addition of nylon (20%), garments and accessories made with this yarn will become heirloom pieces that you will cherish a long time!

Each year, a part of the Collection BFL changes according to the chosen theme. In 2018, Ultraviolet was the Pantone colour of the year and the whole collection was created around it. In 2019, David Bowie was the theme I chose to explore to create the colour palette. 2020's theme is Favorite movies. The new colour collection will be added to the online shop in April 2020!
