Lancashire Farm Wools. From Farm To Yarn

category: Textile/Haberdashery/Knitting Supplies   

region: North West   

From Farm To Yarn ‘3 counties wool’. I’m a textile designer/maker and wool merchant working with farmers in two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Lancashire. I work closely with the farmers to promote their wool and buy my fleeces direct from the farms which are high nature value and low intensity.

The coloured fleeces come from a conservation grazer flock in Silverdale on Morecambe Bay, the white fleeces are from an organic flock of Lonk sheep, Lancashire’s ancient native heritage breed in Whitewell, Forest of Bowland. The fleeces are spun into yarn in Derbyshire using minimal processing to impact as little as possible on the environment and made into bags, hats and throws by me in Cheshire. I have Double Knit, Aran and Chunky weight yarn all can be used with standard knitting patterns. I don’t use dyes but the yarns do take dye very well. Samples available on request. Kate Schofield, Lancashire Farm Wools.
