all our products are lovingly hand crafted. None of our wool is dyed simply because the natural colours are so varied and, to us,

gorgeous.  Our speciality is our Cuddly Baas which are based on one of 12 rare breeds. Beanie Hats, Berets and muttons (mittens)

are also available.  We also run 1 and 2 day spinning courses. Contact: Jayne Drinkwater 01763 245 255,,
