Stories from Our Yarn Producers
Here at The Woolly Thistle we encourage woolly wanderlust and share information about where the wool was grown and milled. We specialize in finding yarn made at the source whether that be on wild Scottish islands, or in the bucolic Devon countryside. We are passionate about yarns with a story!
"Our products, like our Hebridean sheep, are rare and small in number. Sustainably produced, they glean their aesthetic qualities from the Hebridean landscape and culture." - Meg Rodger
Studio Donegal began its life as an idealistic project to preserve the tradition of hand weaving. Tristan and Anne are now the second generation, running the family business bringing us 100% Irish-made wool products.
Ramón and his team at WoolDreamers has reclaimed the use of Spanish Wool. We are delighted to support this worthy cause by bringing you the beautiful and natural yarns made from Spanish Manchego and Merino sheep.
