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!


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.
