Winter to Summer 2013 News

Luxurious New Spinning Tops

We have had 3 mixtures produced from fine white merino, grey and black alpaca and brown lama. All are a joy to spin, producing blends of natural colours that will knit with a wonderful soft drape.

Russian Style Supported Spindles and Matching Bowls

These will be arriving soon, made for us from multi coloured layered Russian wood.

Soft Woollen Blankets

Beautiful original jacquard woven blankets are designed by Jurate from Staffordshire who quotes “being a designer has allowed me to go beyond the purely technical and to nourish and explore my inner creative world.” What results is amongst the most innovative of what wool has to offer. Designs include sheep, hearts, floral, dogs, horses and have matching cushions.

Performance Wool

This our other “wool” and natural fibre based business. We have a selection of merino smartwool clothing from base layers, hats and socks for leisure, hiking, trekking, skiing, mountaineering, etc. We even have mens underpants made from beech wood fibre! My favourite product is baby merino bootees, I shall keep a pair for my new grandaughter due end of May.
