The Bluefaced Leicester comes from one flock here on the Black Isle – Craiglands is just a handful of miles from my home in Fortrose. This flock of majestic-looking Bluefaced Leicesters produces typically fine, silky and lustrous fleeces. The Suri Alpaca used in this blend is British and sourced for me by The Border Mill. The natural silver is a blend of several undyed shades, giving a heathery depth to the silver grey colour. There is also a natural white version which takes natural dyes beautifully.
This special luxury yarn was beautifully spun by The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders.
