With my love of textiles, it was only a matter of time before I found a way to begin producing our own unique British yarns. The wool comes from our fine wool flocks exclusively nurtured and bred for their quality fibre. The flock is managed, and sheared by Susie our awesome shepherdess, and right hand lady. Susie has always had a passion for sheep starting her own flock at the age of 10!
Every last fleece is hand sorted on the farm by Susie and myself to ensure that only the best quality fibres go into our yarn. A luxury product takes time to produce, and a good relationship with all the artisans involved is a must, each as important a link in the chain as each other. The years of experience culminating in the production of a luxury British yarn. The fibre is washed in Yorkshire by Matt, and worsted spun in Devon by John or woollen spun by Michael, returning to be hand dyed on the farm by me.
The colours of the beautiful countryside we inhabit, and the coast line of my childhood Pembrokeshire home, inspire me in the dye studio. Colour is an obsession for me, a never ending search for further knowledge on this vast subject pushes me on.
