Blacker Yarns and Blacker Designs were launched in 2008 as brands of The Natural Fibre Company, a specialist wool mill at Launceston on the Cornwall-Devon border of the UK. NFC spins all the yarns used for the Blacker brand.
The mill specializes in adding value to fleece supplied by farmers and turning it into high-quality knitting or weaving yarns which they can sell for themselves to generate a new or growing source of income from their flocks.
The Natural Fibre Company has been spinning yarns since 1991, and the services they offer have increased dramatically since 2005 when managing director Sue Blacker and her family bought the company from its previous owners.
