Tough Little Birds is a BRAND NEW Bluefaced Leicester base added April of 2022.

This tough yarn is a beautiful product and takes the dye really well. It’s perfect for sweaters, shawls and absolutely incomparable for sock knitters. The long staple (the length of a lock of shorn wool) in the BFL wool creates a hard-wearing yarn that is resistant to pilling and makes it super strong. BFL also has better rebound//memory, so your socks or garment or shawl won’t stretch out. Add 25% nylon to the mix, and your socks are going to wear for a long time!
