British Knitting Yarn from Our Farm

In 2004, Neil, I and our 3 little girls bought a derelict farm, nestled into the Hampshire countryside. Determined to return this ancient farmstead back to it's traditional methods, where care for our woolly ladies, their pastures and the environment are paramount. Producing Ethical Hand Dyed British knitting yarns spun here on the farm in our own mill, for the discerning knitter.

Farming Ethically: Knitting Beautifully


Just to say thanks for such a beautiful book. Good quality paper, stunning designs, and beautiful photography. The problem is, what to knit first!


My yarn arrived yesterday and the colour is even more beautiful, and the Gotland even more scrumptious than I imagined.


I have just got the "Hampshire DK" package which I ordered. Wonderful wool and beautiful gorgeous colours.I will use it to make a cardigan.


Farming Fibre With Care and Kindness

Our aim is to farm our land and our woolly ladies with care and kindness. When we arrived at the farm in 2004 it had been intensively farmed with little regard to the natural flora and fauna. Over the last 16 years we have planted kilometers of hedgerow to provide habitat for a diverse range of birds and mini beasts. Revived our chalk downland through a carefully managed grazing programme, ensuring that this endangered habitat is there for generations to come. Nuturing our ancient woodland, established pre 1600s to maintain the delicate balance and ecosystem that are irreplicable in our polluted age.
