Gotland

Gotland sheep produce very fine and particularly warm wool in shades from silver to charcoal.  The yarn is remarkably light when made up, has a wonderful lustre and takes dye beautifully.  Founder of the company, Sue Blacker, owns a flock of Gotland sheep and every batch of our Gotland yarn includes a small amount from Sue’s Cornish flock.  Gotland sheep - like the fibre - are rather special!  Sue believes that they are “an extremely intelligent sheep, with a sense of humour and mischief.”

By hand sorting all fleeces, we are able to create heathered woollen spun shades in both DK and 4-ply.  We always have Natural Mid Grey Gotland and the dyed shades available, while Pale and Dark are occasional limited editions depending on fibre availability.
