The Grey Sheep Co

The Grey Sheep Co. (formerly known as Little Grey Sheep) is located at Well Manor Farm, a small family farm on the Surrey Hampshire borders. The wool comes from their fine wool flocks exclusively nurtured and bred for their quality fiber. Every last fleece is hand sorted on the farm to ensure that only the best quality fibers go into their yarn. A luxury product takes time to produce, and a good relationship with all the artisans involved is a must.

    Grey Sheep Co.

    Our sheep are an integral part of our conservation plan, through managed grazing and reversion of agricultural land to traditional pastures. It is only by using time honored methods, that enable us to return the landscape to its historic roots.

    The Sheep

    These sturdy sheep eat and forage the whole day long while they grow their hardy wool that protects them from the harsh weather so often found on the West Coast of Scotland. Our sheep lamb on our croft in the spring. We then take them by boat to summer grazing on islands in the Sound of Harris. Around July, we shear the sheep on the islands with the wool sorted and graded once we are back ashore on the croft. In the autumn, the ewes are brought back for tupping, after which they spend most of the winter on the machair common grazin
