Our main love is to work with naturally coloured fleeces from Rare Breed
& Traditional British sheep, creating carded batts for the home spinner to finish into unique hand spun items and yarns for the knitter who likes to work and create garments that feel ' alive ' and have worth
Alongside hand spinning, we enjoy weaving with a variety of yarns but using hand spun warps and wefts especially, in our opinion, gives a beautiful soft drape to the fabric, giving it the WOW factor.
We focus on providing a high quality service with customer satisfaction at the core of our business - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
During the year we offer classes in spinning and weaving, details can be found in the Spinning & Weaving drop down menu.
BESPOKE SPINNING & WEAVING SERVICES
For the small sheep and Alpaca producers we can add value to your raw fibre by hand spinning it into beautiful yarns for you to sell onto a wider market.
We can also weave the yarn into scarves and throws.
For dog & cat owners having the fibre processed into a spun yarn ready to knit or crochet with, will give you a treasured ' gift ' from your loved pet.
Unfortunatley, not all dog & cat fibre is processable, please contact us to discuss whether your pets fibre is usable
