Homespun Knitwear from Moorit Mix

Elphin – North West Sutherland

Bridie & Russell Pursey work in tandem to produce home-grown pure wool hanks and products from their croft in Sutherland, in the NW Highlands of Scotland, which they sell at local markets, or mail to order.

Bridie spins fleeces from their Shetland flock into yarn. She knits it into hats, scarves and sweaters of natural moorit shades.

Some of the light coloured hanks are dyed on the croft by Russell, to produce brightly-coloured garments.
