Jill Jones' Profile
That’s Sheep for hello. We know that because for the last 12 months, we have been careering around the UK making friends with all manner of ovine creatures.
Living in the rural recesses of Somerset, it is easy to longingly admire the woollen shawls that adorn the sheep around us. Being the fibre fanatic that she is, it was not long before JillyBean found a way to unite her love of knitting with her long unrequited love of sheep’s wool.
We set off with the aim of being able to support and encourage smallholders, many of whom keep rare sheep and alpaca. These days, there are not many options to dispose of the fleece, with many being simply burnt as disposal is costly. Thankfully, this is where JillyBean comes in, offering a fair price for what many farmers have treated as a waste product for many seasons...
