WEST YORKSHIRE SPINNERS LTD: West Yorkshire Spinners source all their own raw material which is then produced into yarn in their state of the art factory based in West Yorkshire, England. This reduces the carbon footprint of their products and also enables them to manufacture at a very low cost, which is passed on to you.

BLUEFACED LEICESTER WOOL: The Bluefaced Leicester evolved near Hexham in the county of Northumberland, England, during the early 1900's. They are descendants of Robert Bakewell's improved Dishley Leicester. The breed originated from Border Leicester individuals selected for the blue face (white hairs on black skin) and finer fleeces. It was developed as a sire of high quality crossbred ewes.
