Local natural fibres

Get your hand-dyed yarn fix, guilt-free

You won't find any synthetic or superwash yarn here. It's all natural fibres sourced locally in the South-West of England from happy, healthy animals.

These are spun to a high standard by small UK mills and hand-dyed in small batches using environmentally conscious methods.
