  • Details
    This yarn is produced from our own animals on our small family run farm here in the Cotswolds. We send it to a traditional woollen mill to be spun into DK yarn. When it returns to us I use natural plant dyes to achieve wonderful colours. Natural dyes produce beautiful colours which are kind to the environment and gentle in nature. Some of the plants I use are grown here on the farm others I buy in such as Indigo. I love to experiment and to try new plants.

    Blues dyed using indigo
    Greens dyed using indigo and weld
    Pinks dyed using cochineal or lac
    Yellows dyed using weld
    Purple dyed using logwood
    Orange dyed using madder.

    My husband shears the alpacas and I carefully hand select the finest and best quality fleeces which are sent to the mill in Wales.

    My husband and I with our two teenage boys care for our herd of 40 alpacas, and love it.
    We live as simply as possible and want to bring you sustainable, ecofriendly and beautiful yarn.
