Sally is the wonderful woman behind Meadows Flock. From the first moment I contacted her (as the Highland Rep of the Shetland Sheep Society) she has been entirely enthusiastic, helpful and positive about my plans for Black Isle Yarns. She has been keeping Shetlands for many years and I suspect has ‘enabled’ a great many other small flocks in the Highlands.
Sally rents a variety of small fields on the edge of the beautiful old town of Dornoch and her sheep are the friendliest I’ve ever come across. Sally calls ‘sheep’ to bring in her lovely wee flock – I love seeing them come rushing in for pellets and a little scratch here and there. Sally is a knitter and spinner and has breeds her flock with a particular emphasis on wool quality. When I visited Oliver Henry, of the Shetland Wool Brokers, he commented that he knows Sally and how good her wool is. I feel very lucky to be able to buy it for Black Isle Yarns.
