Bluefaced Leicester yarn

Bluefaced Leicester yarn

Just arrived yesterday, this Bluefaced Leicester yarn, which comes in Aran and DK weights, is incredibly soft to the touch.  It has a very silky feel, and a lustrous look so is perfect to wear next to your skin.  This yarn is undyed and comes in light brown, ecru and natural brown.  This yarn is supported by patterns.
