BFL fiber is fine, silky, lustrous and strong - an incredibly versatile fiber. BFL yarns are naturally soft but they are also good for items that are subject to wear such as socks, mittens, sweaters and hats. They drape well without heaviness due to the natural crimp of the fiber and, with long staple fibres, these yarns are less prone to pilling than many wools. The natural shine of BFL also emphasises the shape of stitches so is ideal for textured stitches and cables.
