Commercial blend yarn from 2 young farmers near Gorebridge and Crossgates, Scotland. The yarn is a mix of Suffolk, Texel and Shetland. The market for commercial yarn in the UK is under-explored and farmers routinely burn the fleeces as it is quicker and cheaper than sending them to wool cooperatives. We buy the fleeces from 2 farms and turn it into yarn, for every kilo we buy, we pay enough to not only cover costs but also make a profit. Yarn has a value and we want to prove that.
This yarn will surprise you by its softness and can be worn against the skin very easily. It also has great stitch definition and works well for cabling or colour-work.
A range of colours are available, inspired by the colours of Scotland that are around us every day. We create each individual colour in our own home and only use British made dyes to reduce our carbon footprint.

Introducing our latest addition to our handcrafted yarn collection, made with love and care by a team of passionate farmers! Our pure wool yarn is a blend of Suffolk, Texel, and Shetland fleeces, sourced from our smallholder partners and our neighbours.
We take pride in our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices, and that includes supporting our local farming community. We purchase the Suffolk and Texel fleeces from our neighbours, who are commercial young commercial. Typically, the wool from these breeds has little to no value in the commercial market, and is often discarded as waste. We buy it for a fair price, ensuring our neighbours make a profit from every kilo we buy. This not only helps to reduce waste but also supports our local economy and community.
Our Shetland fleeces come from the same smallholders that we work with for our pure Shetland yarn. We believe in fostering long-term relationships with our partners, and that includes treating them with respect and fairness.
