Working for Us

The Natural Fibre Company is a specialist wool mill based in Cornwall close to the Devon border. We have 20 staff: ten in production, and eight in the office, with two directors also employed on management and marketing. We have outside, part time help with bookkeeping, accountancy, marketing, information technology and the web site.  We are proud to say that we are aiming as far as possible to pay staff at the Living Foundation living wage once their employment is confirmed following probation.

Since we relocated to Cornwall in 2005, our turnover has increased year-on-year by between 15-20%, we have launched Blacker Yarns and established ourselves internationally as a supplier of high-quality yarn.  The holding company is called Blacker Sheep. We are a value-driven company and enjoy sharing these with customers and partners as well as our whole staff team.


We have recently recruited several new members of staff in production and marketing and are currently looking for someone to support marketing for Blacker Yarns.  If you are interested in working for an amazing and special yarn company, please look at the job details, then email us including a copy of your curriculum vitae and also a covering letter explaining how and why you fit the person specification.

We are always interested in talking to people about options.  Please send an email to Sue Blacker in the first instance, including your current curriculum vitae and stating which role interests you.

We are happy to receive speculative CVs which we will retain for six months in the event of suitable opportunities arising.

Suitable interns are welcome for periods of work experience, usually for two to three months, but for a minimum of six weeks.  If this is of interest, please email attaching a CV and a link to your college or university.

We have a standard contract of employment which we regularly update to comply with best practice and the latest regulations.  Those interested in working for us should either e-mail, write to Sue Blacker or telephone 01566 777 635.
