YARN WITH A STORY TO TELL

This soft black yarn is from Greta, the speediest thing on four legs in our field. Greta is a two year old 'Shotland' ewe, who lives with her mum Socks, a pure Shetland, and her sister Garbo who is also a very darkly fleeced girl. Greta loves to rush downhill at us when we least expect it, to make sure she's always first in the queue for her favourite pasta twirl treats. Our Shotlands had a very dark Gotland ram for their daddy, hence their beautiful dark fleeces. With this blend, Greta's dark grey wool has been added to black alpaca fibre to make a gorgeously textured black yarn.

Our high welfare artisan yarn is from a small mixed flock of sheep at our livestock sanctuary in Nottinghamshire UK. The boys were originally called The Hooligans because of their boisterous behaviour and unerring knack of seeking out trouble, and although the girls are generally better behaved, they also have their moments. And so Hooligan Yarns was born!

It’s essential for the welfare of sheep that they’re shorn at least once a year, but the fleece is often disposed of or given away for next to nothing. I liked the idea of producing a ‘single sheep’ yarn that promoted a high welfare message to support the charity. Our undyed yarn is machine spun in UK mills and individually gift packaged, with the name and quirks of each sheep provided as a story with each order.

Limited quantities are available owing to the size of flock – all current stock shown here, with updates twice yearly following the spring and autumn shearings.

Yarn sales go directly to support our charity Manor Farm Charitable Trust which offers lifelong sanctuary for livestock in need. UK Registered Charity No. 1173761.
