Colonsay Wool Growers

Based on Balnahard Farm on the Hebridean island of Colonsay, Colonsay Wool Growers produce a unique range of yarns & 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 & KITS are made from the softer fleeces of the Blue Face Leicester, Lleyn & Teeswater crosses. Hebridean fleeces are also blended in, adding their rich brown colour. Small batch natural dyeing completes the range. The Bog Myrtle, Heather & Mosses used are picked on the farm and produce lovely muted colours.
