YARN WITH A STORY TO TELL

This silky steel grey pure Gotland DK yarn is from Gordon, a sweet but determined boy who is slightly disabled through a birth defect to his neck. This means his head is permanently tilted to one side, giving him a quizzical air but not making him any less lovable! Gordon likes to rest his chin on your shoulder while you give his chest a big rub. He can often be found with his twin Gladstone, who used to protect his wonky brother when they were both small lambs, making sure he always got chance to eat when the other sheep were being rowdy.

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. www.manorfarmcharitabletrust.org
