Did you know we only buy yarn which guarantees that the best farming and welfare practices. We specify that none of our yarns are to come from farms practising mulesing.
Our Blue-faced Leicester is British, this comes from small farms all over the UK.
Our Merino based yarns come mainly from Argentina, Peru and Uruguay. It comes from small herders where sheep and alpacas are their livelihoods, it's in their interest to look after their livestock, in order to receive the highest price possible for their fleece and guarantee themselves an income. Many are part of co-operatives which provide a living wage, education programmes including animal welfare.
