Welcome To Isle Yarns (old site)
'From farm to needles with authenticity and our own unique story'
We produce and supply single breed knitting wool direct from our family farm in Dorset, in small batches and in a palette of colours to reflect the stunning Purbeck landscape.
The Poll Dorset Ewes quality fleeces are taken to a local mill to be washed, spun and dyed using mineral dyes approved by the organic soil association.
The yarns are woollen spun using the crisp, full bodied fibre that Dorset sheep naturally have and prepared using a drum carder. The spinning technique used allows the fibre to wrap upon itself while trapping air in the centre. This makes the yarn 'bloom' when hand washed.
Produced in Dorset, United Kingdom
