British Wool Yarn
ALPHABETICAL LIST OF STOCKISTS OF BRITISH BREEDS YARNS AND BRITISH WOOL YARNS
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION HERE BEFORE USING ANY LISTINGS ON WOOLSACK
In addition to the linked above, please note - Some of these stockists also stock yarn in addition to their British breeds yarn/British blended wool that may not be British wool. 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 Woolsack since it is from a British Overseas Territory.
Some of the stockists listed also have yarns that are blends of British wool with fibres including silk & flax. The rule of thumb I'm using is to list any stockist with at least one product that is 100% British wool, but some will have yarns that are British wool blended with a non-wool fibre.
For yarns from smaller producers please be aware that the quality of yarn can vary considerably from year to year, and flock to flock, dependent on such factors as weather conditions affecting fleece growth.
This list should be regarded as a source of information only and not recommendations by anyone involved with Woolsack. See further information on this page.
NOTE - Stockists are listed by the first word of the name they use on their website/shop, which in the case of those beginning 'The' may not always be the one people generally refer to. So it's worth checking in the 'The' part of the alphabetical list if you can't find a stockist elsewhere in the list.
