For the first time we are thrilled to be able to offer you some of our beautiful Shetland sheep fleece, cleaned and carded at the mill, ready for your soft and bouncy spinning projects.
Sold by the 100g this roving is a delight to work with and each sale supports us to look after the flock.
We have 8 Shetlands at the moment and they live peacefully in our fields year round, grass fed, and help us to manage our fields with biodiversity and wildlife in mind.
We hand shear them, a peaceful process that leaves them with a short layer of fleece to keep them warm in the spring. Blade shearing the traditional way takes a little longer but the quiet process means happier, calmer sheep, healthier fleeces, and beautiful wool for crafting.
Look out for hand spun yarn and woven pieces made from our own flock over the coming months.
