The Grey Sheep Co.

Jaycee Cardigan - Isabell Kraemer


A fabulous pattern from the legendary designer Isabell Kramer using yarn from The Grey Sheep Co.


The Hampshire is a scrumptious lofty yarn, with good stitch definition. Once blocked the fabric blooms and has a silky quality which only improves with wear. Just right for a snuggly cardigan or a colour work project. The colours are based on the natural colours of our home county, working with the variegated base rather than trying to obliterate it with saturated colour.

Why love us and invest it our yarn?


Our farm has been here since Tudor times. Historically low intensive mixed farming was the best way to keep disease down and biodiversity up. Preserving the countryside and native wild life through traditional farming practices continues to be our priority to this day.


From start to finish, lambing, making the hay we feed, through to the scouring (washing) plant and spinning mill, right back to the hand dyeing on the farm. Everything is done in the UK. 


Only pure virgin wool is used, no chlorine chemical treatments, no super wash just as nature intended. 


Each part of the process relies on the artisans expertise, it takes years of training to produce our yarn, but it takes something else as well. Passion. Everyone involved, is nuts about producing the best of British yarn from Susie shearing, Matt washing and Michael spinning. Lastly but not least me hand dyeing every skein for your enjoyment.
