People come to us from all over world for our range of breed specific knitting yarns. For 10 years we have tracked down and sourced these individual British breeds - mostly from farms in the UK but a few suppliers are based in the Falklands. Some of these breeds are scarce, others are more common and could be found just a few miles away from your home. All are wonderfully unique, so don't miss out!
We offer a variety of breed specific yarn in both dyed and natural shades. The following five breed specific yarns make up our permanent collection. If you are looking for something a little different then please take a look at our limited edition breeds. These breeds come and go, much like a guest ale, so there is always something new and exciting to try.
You will see, when you get to each individual yarn product page, that we have added some icons to attempt to describe the yarn handle for you. There may be one, two or three little sheep symbols - the more sheep, the softer the yarn!
