Beautiful natural fibre from happy grass fed animals

Everything that we do on the farm is about keeping it simple and making the most of what we have around us. We want to create a diverse farm environment that encourages wildlife and native farmland plants. Our sheep and alpacas are rotated around herbal leys and restored grassland and each year they provide wonderful fibre in a range of natural colours. The best bits of the fibre crop are spun at UK mills, and the yarn is sold at Wyken Vineyard Farmers Market, at our farm, or in our online shops. Some we keep for crochet or weaving projects in our small living room studio.

    I am very lucky that our family farm allows me to indulge my love of livestock, natural fibres and crafting. My happy place is sitting with my crochet, looking across the fields when the herbal leys are in flower and the grass is tall.

Care instructions

All of our fibre products should be hand washed with care in warm water. Lay items flat to dry where possible.

To keep felted soaps at their best leave them on a surface to dry in between uses.

Custom and personalised orders

We are happy to take commissions for handmade items. Please get in touch with your ideas via kath@freerangefibre.co.uk. We price commissions individually based on the amount of yarn used and our making time. We will always provide an estimate of cost before we start your commission, but if it is a new pattern the amount of materials used, or the time taken may change. We will always try to keep any changes to a minimum and will keep in touch with you throughout.

We provide size dimensions for handmade products on each item listing. We also provide a photo of the item being worn where possible.
If you have any queries about sizing please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We package all items in sustainable tissue and card packaging.
Each item is accompanied by a picture of the alpaca that helped to produce it.
