Two friends with shared enthusiasms for horticulture and animals decided to acquire a couple of sheep. “I could spin” said Margaret. “I have pasture” said Linda. When Linda first got her hands into a raw fleece, a whole new adventure was born.
Always a passionate artist, Linda has been drawing and painting her whole life and immediately recognized her new medium. Her canvas is now handmade felt with incredible depth and texture; her paintbrush is a needlefelting needle; and her palette is homegrown fleece in natural and hand-dyed colours. The view from her workroom window now features a flock of sixteen purebred Shetland sheep.
Margaret and Linda work together in a unique collaboration creating one of a kind pocket purses and other accessories. Margaret does the sewing, prepares and dyes the fleeces, and spins.
We aim for contented sheep on healthy land, producing fine fleeces in a variety of natural colours. We take great pleasure in transforming fleece into items of art and craft that reflect the beauty and texture of the medium. We find inspiration and joy in nature and the animal world.
