Yarn mamas I need help!

I have pulled out some stashed yarn from 2 yrs ago, to find that some how the label is gone. I need help trying to figure out base, I'm aware this could be tricky. So what I have looks similar to bulky gaia, only is slightly fuzzier, and while knitting the yarn tries to separate. Could this yarn be bfl?
Oh and thank you!

Do you the dyer/colorway? The might help narrow it down. Not all dyers use the same bases.

I vote BFL or 3 ply merino. And just by the pic I'd say 3 ply.

I dyed it, but I dont remember for sure. It's probably 3 ply or bfl, more likely bfl it could also be 4 ply merino

From the pic I thought 3ply as well. BFL usually looks a little hairier to me.

Re: Yarn mamas I need help!

The main reason I was leaning more towards bfl is because, I really don't remember ever requesting 3ply. However with time my mind is leaving me
Thanks everyone for your help! (wish I still had my old email account)
