Case Studies

We've recently been working with our customers on some case studies; these showcase different breeds and items which have been produced using pure wool (or alpaca) fibre.  Follow the links below to read individual studies or go to our case studies page to view them all.

Wovember: The NFC European Tour

30 November, 2016 - 13:30 -- Lara Pollard-Jones

In the world of wool November is Wovember; a month where we celebrate and promote pure wool and its origins. 

This year Wovember has focussed on the politics of wool, and is also looking at breeds from across Europe.  We are passionate about real wool and hate the “woolly” untruths so often found in advertising as well as the over simplistic and inaccurate reporting about the sustainability and welfare of wool production and processing.  So we are very keen to support Wovember 2016!

The Story of St. Kilda

It is well known that the Boreray is at the top of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust watch list and that the Soay is still at risk (though thankfully its numbers haven’t dropped in the past year).  Due to the small size, propensity to shed and rarity of these breeds they are not usually spun into a yarn as the commercial viability for small quantities is so limited.
