Colonsay Wool Growers
Based on Balnahard Farm on the Hebridean island of Colonsay, Colonsay Wool Growers produce a unique range of yarns and products from the fabulous fleeces of the sheep raised on the island.
GARDEN STRING is made from the tough, hardwearing fleeces of the Blackface ewes.
YARNS AND KNITS are made of the softer fleeces of the Blue Face Leicester, Lleyn and Teeswater crosses. Hebridean fleeces are also blended in, adding their rich brown colour. Small batch natural dyeing completes the range. The Bog Myrtle, Heather and Mosses used are picked on the farm and produce lovely muted colours.
