This Bluefaced Leicster fibre is very special indeed. I pounced on it when I squished it at Fibre East, where John Arbon Textiles had one of their irresistible stands. It's taken them two years to produce, working with specific Devon based breeders. They say it's unlike anything else on the market, and I have to agree. It's really spectacular fibre. Supremely soft with a beautiful hand, it really is a must, and I can't wait to dye more of it.
I was inspired to create this really fantastic colour by looking at photos of the industrial landscapes of North America. I love how the deep rust and orange stand out so beautifully against clear blue skies. The base is a very pale brown, with turquoise and rust coloured dye randomly applied. Please be aware, however, that every braid is very different in terms of where the colour appears, although the colours are the same.
The fibre is 100% Exmoor bred BFL, and each braid weighs 100g.
