It was nice to hear from people about their responses to my "thought" piece, so I thought a bit more!  But there are a couple of pictures  this time, which I hope convey the words.

This is about our strategic thinking for The Natural Fibre Company and Blacker Yarns but also about British sheep.

We will also be producing a small item on the development of our logos and how they diverged and then converged in graphic terms and why.

Meet our lovely stockists!

Here at Blacker we thought it was about time to give our lovely stockists some love, find out more about them below!

Here we look at three important aspects of fleece and fibre: consistency/style, colour and animal health.

Consistency varies considerably between different breeds, within the breed and across the animal. We can have Gotland sheep, all of which have lustre longwool, with wide variations of thickness and crimp between different animals and a range of these across the body of an individual.

One of the joys of having our own mill, is that it gives us the freedom to experiment and try new things.  For the last two years we've celebrated our birthday in September by creating a limited edition - one of a kind - yarn, and this year is no exception.  Like all our yarns the development of Brushwork was an organic process, which began with the fibre.
