The Spinning Barn
Hand Spinning Workshops, Fibre & Equipment
We are passionate about preserving our traditional rare breed sheep, specialising in the endangered North Ronaldsay. Theresa produces the wool here on the farm ready for you to buy and by doing so you are helping to preserve this delightful breed of sheep for generations to come. Each fleece is prepared individually to showcase the particular qualities of that fleece. You will even receive a photo of the sheep who kindly supplied it for you!
Come for a day and learn the traditional, intriguing art of hand spinning on a spinning wjheel at one of our workshops. You will learn the whole process from fibre preparation to spinning your own skein of yarn to take home.
James also produces hand crafted equipment and we are especially proud of our very own DRUM CARDER.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
Theresa and James
