The Bluefaced Leicester is used to produce the "mule", a commercial ewe which excels at raising multiple lambs in a grass-based system. The BFL could be called "the great improver"; adding prolificacy, milking and mothering ability, length of loin, and rate of growth to their offspring. And the wool! Long, lustrous, luxurious......and extremely soft and silky to the touch. With the length and lustre of the longwool, yet the fineness of merino, BFL is the premier fiber for handspinners, and much sought after.
