British Wool Fabric & Felt

Following is an alphabetical list of all the sources & stockists of British breeds wool fabric and British blended wool fabric that have been identified.  If you know of a stockist or source of British wool yarn that is not listed please contact me through the website contact, Facebook Group, Twitter or Ravelry Group so they can be added to the list.

Please note - Some of these stockists also stock fabric, in addition to their British breeds/British blended wool fabric, that may not be British.  You may need to check with them if you're unsure if a particular product was 'grown' on British animals.  Falklands wool is being regarded as British for this project since it is from a British Overseas Territory.

This list should be regarded as a source of information only and not recommendations by anyone involved with Woolsack.

London Cloth Company  Our British Wool all comes from small flocks of sheep within the British Isles. We have been working with ecologist Heather Webb from Nude Ewe and shearer Michael Churchhouse to source wool from conservation flocks, which is then spun into yarn for us in Halifax. The resulting yarn is 100% natural, un-dyed British wool. We never dye it and rarely blend colours, so we design the cloth by breed of sheep. Despite this, there is a huge spectrum of shades to choose from.  Store
