British grown and British made! Our BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) yarn is grown on the British Isles and spun in the British Yorkshire Dales, promising a delightful tactile knitting experience. BFL yarn is often compared with merino – BFL being stronger and holding its shape much better. Soft and bouncy to the touch, it is a favourite among knitters. With a very low CO2 footprint and naturally dyed in Ireland – how could it get better?
