We run a small croft above Loch Ness with Gotland and Gotland cross Shetland sheep, where we grow all our own vegetables and fruit. Our backgrounds are in agriculture and ecology so we have a strong bond with the natural world and land management.
Whilst we don’t have a “bricks and mortar” shop we are delighted to welcome visitors at any time, the kettle is always on and there is often some home baking as well.
What We Produce
Washed and cleaned fleece from our own sheep and selected local flocks; our own handspun yarns, where colours are blended through our wool picker and then carded on the hand drum carder before being spun; and yarns from New Lanark which are spun in the Clyde Valley. Our aim is to source and process quality fleece that is locally produced and is sustainable.
We also run fleece to yarn courses. Tuition is available in both Workshop and on a One to One basis and is held in the restored steading at Bunloit. From learning the basics on a drop spindle to getting to grips with a beautiful spinning wheel we can cater to all levels from complete beginner to experienced spinner.
