Spinners love the fleeces from my sheep:

Throws, Sheepskins etc.

Every sheepskin is different. Some have long and dramatic fleece, some short, soft and cosy, and in all sorts of natural colours.

We are just awaiting the latest batch to come back from Herefordshire-based organic tannery we are pleased to support.

Here we see throws in production on the loom:

Our throws have been woven at a small family-run mill just down the road from Cwmchwefru.

I like to do a bit of weaving too: here is a lovely chunky rug made from sheep fleece:

Knitting

Sometimes I only knit one of a design… a real “designer original”…

Others come in different colours and variations on a theme…

Note that the wool shades change every year because the sheep fleeces change.

This is a popular design…

…no worries about size…
