Longboat: Bluefaced Leicester Wool/Baby Alpaca Yarn, 50/50


This yarn is a special blend of two beautiful fibers. The Bluefaced Leicester breed is unique to the UK and is smoother than traditional wools. This gives a silky quality to the yarn. Baby Alpaca is among the finest grades of alpaca. Perfect for any project that will take advantage of the softness and drape of this yarn.
