Severn is our blend of BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) and Silk. A BFL sheep has luxuriously long, silken, Shirley Temple-esque locks to go with its blue Roman nose. This sheep is known for its threadlike, incredibly light wool. Because our yarns are locally spun and hand dyed using all natural dyes, it is recommended that you alternate skeins throughout your project. Be sure to order enough skeins to complete your project as each bag we make is a different dye lot.
Blend: 75% BFL and 25% Silk
Weight/Yardage: Approx. 4 oz/240 yards
