At Wester Raddery, around 5 miles from my base, Philip has a beautiful flock of Bluefaced Leicesters on his mixed arable farm.  There’s also equally lovely small flocks of Zwartbles and Texels but, to date, it is the BFL fleece that I have bought.  Although Philip’s flock is small he breeds for quality and, additionally tends to have one or two coloured BFL fleeces – these are a real bonus, allowing me to produce natural rose grey BFL yarns.

On my first visit I particularly enjoyed meeting the very handsome Craiglands BFL tups – they seemed well aware of their own majesty!
