Corporate Social Responsibility 

We support a number of local initiatives from time to time including Freddie’s Fibre Friends, a Community Interest Company set up to offer sensory fibre craft to children with special educational needs and Totnes Spinners, who have raised funds for Ukraine by selling raffle tickets for a woollen blanket made with some of our mill by-products.
