Hand spun local wool

 

Our hand spun local wool is sourced where possible from the beautiful Isle of Skye where the sheep are so clean!  We  process this fleece at our shop and then send it out to our spinners to work their magic. Skye wool ranges from double knitting to aran weight to a super chunky art yarn with great knobbly bits! We usually have Shetland, Jacobs Humbug, Hebridean and Texel wool but if we find a great fleece we cannot say no to we will also spin it.

We are very proud to stock wool from sheep and spinners across Skye and our closes flock lives only three miles away. You may see them on your way to the shop!

Each hank expresses the unique personality of the spinner and show the love and dedication they put into their craft. Our spun wool comes in woollen, worsted and semi worsted twist and creates fabulously unique garments!

We also have a bit of fun spinning pre dyed fibres especially gorgeously soft merino and also wools/ fibres from other interesting creatures like camel, alpaca, silk, cashmere, rose and wild art fibres.

 

For the spinners out there

 

We also stock spinning supplies for the budding spinner and someone is always on hand to help out any newbie. Our wide range of beautifully blended roving is a joy to spin, we have some stunning lustrous silk blends and super soft merinos. We also create beautiful carded batts of mixed fibres on the blending board for that something a bit different…..
