Ruataniwha Dye Studio
Distinctive, Traceable Hand-Dyed Yarn


British Blue-Faced

Leicester Wool

Our lustrous blue-faced leicester yarns are sourced from the finest fleeces grown in Yorkshire, UK. Additionally, scoured and spun in Yorkshire, these yarns are imbued with a real northern English charm.

Dyed in our semi-solid and tonal shades, our BFL yarns are both vibrant and luminous. The soft, draping nature of BFL makes these yarns ideal for lacework shawls, yet robust enough for cables and cardigans alike.
