Our yarns

Spring 2017

I’m so delighted to let you know that batch number 2, Spring 2017, is ready.  There’s a new blog post up with all the details of the various special yarns included in this batch.  I have a completely different set of farms and sheep breeds this time round and some of the resulting yarns are very small batch and completely unique.  Photos and information about the sheep and farms are on the blog and in ‘Meet the Sheep’.

Three yarns from Orrinside Flock’s (ewes called Horse, Frankenstein and Monkey Face!) will be released in kit form alongside my friend Emily’s beautiful Eathie Shawl Pattern, designed specially for these gorgeous yarns, on the evening of 4th May.

To keep up to date, and be the first to hear when new releases are available, join our newsletter (sign-up box on homepage).

Once again every stage has taken place in Scotland – grown and naturally dyed in the Highlands and spun in the Borders.

We will be attending a number of shows and festivals during 2017.  The latest plans are:

Dingwall Highland Wool and Textiles Fair – Dingwall Auction Mart – Saturday 27 May

Loch Ness Knit Fest – Inverness Icerink – Friday 13 to Sunday 15 October

Nottingham Yarn Expo – Nottingham – Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November

Autumn 2016
