(L-R): Telling Yarns, Wool Matters Fibre Co. and Nervus Fibre

Not only do we create and produce all our own yarns and tops, but we also commission spin for other woolly folk, as well as sell our undyed yarn bases to independent dyers.

We are very proud of the yarn we spin for them and are constantly amazed by the colour ways they produce. We hope that you will like what they produce too.

People we spin custom yarns for

An Caitín Beag (England)
We worked with Marna to design a special yarn for a year-long sock knitting adventure. The result was a no-nylon, high-twist, sturdy sock yarn to which Marna added colours designed for each sock in the pattern collection.

Cat and Sparrow UK (England)
We blend and spin several of Rachel’s bases including ‘Superhero DK’, ‘Rolling Stone Sock’ and ‘Toasty Aran’ which are then hand-dyed in a range of glorious colours.

Daughter of a Shepherd (England)
Rachel’s ‘Heritage’ and ‘Brume’ yarns are blended and spun by us. They both feature the wonderful Hebridean fibre that Daughter of a Shepherd is famous for.

Marie Wallin (England)
Marie’s ‘British Breeds’ range is blended and spun at our mill. The yarn is made from four different British sheep breeds: Bluefaced Leicester, Exmoor Blueface, Wensleydale and Zwartbles.

Ovis et Cetera (Germany)
The ‘Close’ no-nylon sock yarn base is custom-spun here in our mill with a blend of Devon Closewool, Exmoor Blueface and Zwartbles and hand-dyed in Germany.

Skein Queen (England)
We custom-spin the ‘Voluptuous’ and ‘Sonsie’ bases to which Rachel adds stunning hand-dyed colours.

Telling Yarns (England)
The ‘Resolute’ and ‘Steadfast’ bases were created to provide the perfect canvas for Beth’s literary-inspired colourways.
