Black Isle Yarns is the culmination of adventures in wool by our friend, Julie, owner of Black Isle Yarns. She lives on the Black Isle just across the Moray Firth from Inverness.  Corinne is the owner of The Woolly Thistle and her family lives in Inverness and her grand-dad lived on the Black Isle, in Fortrose, so she knows this beautiful part of Scotland, and can attest that the fields are full of sheep! Julie works with various farmers around the Black Isle to come up with blends of wool which she then has made into yarn.  

The Woolly Thistle has been lucky enough to occasionally have yarn from Julie available. She operates with small clips and we're grateful to Julie for letting The Woolly Thistle enjoy her yarns and share them with you. If you would like to see more of Julie's work, visit her website: Black Isle Yarns.  

Meet the sheep and read more about the Black Isle on Julie's website Black Isle Yarns.

Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
