Named for the dark-blue skin under their coat, Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) sheep produce lustrous wool with a sheen to the finished yarn. Its drape is lovely and, while not as fine as some Merino, the wool is very soft and comfortable against the skin.
Ohio-based Calyis Designs is a clan of creators lead by mom Melissa. She left a long career owning a business in the drapery trade to do something fun and yarn dying became her passion.
Melissa is fascinated by the stories of our American First Ladies. Her color combinations are inspired by and named for these women who made history.
