YARN WITH A STORY TO TELL
This soft and lustrous Gotland yarn with a gorgeous halo is from Dylan, the most cuddly of all of our sheep and old boy of the flock. He likes nothing better than to have you nuzzle his face and rub his chest, his tail wagging all the while like a big woolly dog. Dylan is a truly gentle elder statesman, always kind and considerate, never rowdy or rude. Arthritis now really restricts his movements but he's a very happy boy, still enjoying his food and lots of attention.
Our high welfare artisan yarn is from a small mixed flock of sheep at our livestock sanctuary in Nottinghamshire UK. The boys were originally called The Hooligans because of their boisterous behaviour and unerring knack of seeking out trouble, and although the girls are generally better behaved, they also have their moments. And so Hooligan Yarns was born!
It’s essential for the welfare of sheep that they’re shorn at least once a year, but the fleece is often disposed of or given away for next to nothing. I liked the idea of producing a ‘single sheep’ yarn that promoted a high welfare message to support the charity. Our undyed yarn is machine spun in UK mills and individually gift packaged, with the name and quirks of each sheep provided as a story with each order.
Limited quantities are available owing to the size of flock – all current stock shown here.
Yarn sales go directly to support our charity Manor Farm Charitable Trust which offers lifelong sanctuary for livestock in need. UK Registered Charity No. 1173761.
