Thank you for visiting. I'm often busy out on the farm so there is sometimes a day or two before I get to the post office. My usual postal day is Friday.

Mill-spun Portland wool yarn in DK.

DK is a 2 ply yarn around 220m per 100g.

Rare breed, small flock yarn from a smallholder near our farm. 

Saved from the compost heap, sent to Rampisham Hill Mill in Dorset for washing, carding and spinning.

Portland is a warm soft fleece with a lovely cream colour and suitable for dyeing. As a rare breed it is important to promote their fleeces for crafting as a way to encourage breeding and care of these beautiful animals.

You are supporting the ongoing survival of a beautiful Dorset rare breed sheep, raised in Somerset and spun in Dorset. A truly small scale, rare breed, ethical, low mileage, sustainable yarn. 

100% natural plastic-free yarn with a soft shade of warm white. It accepts natural dyes easily. Skeins are packaged with a 100% recycled label and recycled tape, and posted in recycled mailers.

Please note this is not blade shorn, and the weight includes the grease from the mill.

Once you add to your basket, you can then edit the amounts before you check out.
