British Hand Dyed Wool
British Yarn from our own farm on the Surrey Hampshire borders. We have developed our own range of fine 100% wool yarns, from our pedigree flock of gotland, shetland and merino sheep. Raised on conservation meadows, and shorn by Susie at Christmas for the best quality fibre. Washed in Yorkshire and spun in a traditional mill in Devon, then back to the farm for dyeing. This must be one of the finest lustre fibre now in the UK
