British Wool Yarn
My British wool yarns are all produced from fleece which I collect annually from a network of farms in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria, plus one special place in the NW Highlands of Scotland.
Sheep breeds include my classic mainstay – Bluefaced Leicester – supplemented by Hebridean, Black Welsh Mountain, Shetland and Wensleydale. A few other breeds occasionally creep into my stash, including Ryeland and Cheviot, plus the odd flock of Cumbrian alpaca.
My yarn is spun in West Yorkshire and dyed in the Scottish Borders to my own bespoke palette.
Most of the yarn is spun as fine singles for fabric weaving, but it is eminently suitable for fine lace knitting and for tapestry.
“Your yarns are even better than I could imagine! They are gorgeous…so subtle and refined.” Jennifer B.
