Red Finally on the Jumbo Flyer...

On the jumbo flyer is the red, pink, and dark red Bluefaced Leicester combed wool top "Estrogen."  I've been wanting to spin this wool top since I bought it.  I've learned the history of the sheep.  The Border Leicester is the sheep who originally had the blue face, black body and with white wool.  The Border Leicester was bred with another sheep and that's where the Bluefaced Leicester came from.  They originate from England.  My wool top came from far away through the hands of many who cared for it.  Now, it's in mine making yarn with my spinning wheel.  

 Wool top that's been drafted and waiting to be spun.

The color of this yarn is very vivid!
