Lifelong Yarns create luxury yarns from the fleece of the Scottish Blackface sheep that is grown, spun and dyed in the Scottish Borders.
“Our ethos is very important to us – ‘Good for the knitter, good for the shepherd, good for the Earth.’
Good for the knitter – we offer yarns which have previously only been available to discerning hand-spinners. These yarns create garments which will last and last.
Good for the shepherd – we pay up to ten times the market price (as established by the British Wool Marketing Board) for Blackface fleece which meets our criteria.
Good for the Earth – our ‘yarn miles’ are minimal (our yarns are grown, spun and sold within a 50 mile radius) and our yarns create long lasting garments which can replace plastic-based outerwear.”
