The Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is a longwool breed of sheep which evolved in Dishley, Leicestershire in the eighteenth century. BFL sheep have curly, fine, rather lustrous wool which is one of the softest of the UK clip. Bluefaced Leicesters are recognizable through their Roman noses, which have a dark blue skin which can be seen through the white hair, hence the name.

Excellent Customer Service

My delivery was destroyed by high winds so strong they blew over the grill and the smoker. Deb resolved the situation without hesitation, despite not being at fault in any way. I am grateful!
